"Like" indicates similarity. In this is case, the cornerstone of success of both traditional pharmacies and online drug-store is prescriptions.

Anyone care to elaborate?

Since 2 objects are compared "like" must be used.

I got A as well...but since I took the GMAT PREP today, I know this is incorrect.

Looking for someone to provide a solid explanation...

the other only answer choice that would make sense is C


C) As is the case with traditional pharmacies, prescriptions are the cornerstone of a successful on-line drugstore, since it is primarily prescriptions that attract the customers, who then also buy other health-related items.

Edit: I guess the focus here is on the prescriptions and not on the pharmacy/drugstore.

Anybody else with any thoughts?
