A - being is meaningful. as is preferred here. operate as businesses (do). like should be used to compare two nouns.
also in B dwellings is compared with business( singular)

Hi guys,

IMO D

(A) of being dwellings that must also operate as businesses being
(B) of dwellings that must also operate like business I think the fail here is using business in singular
(C) that they are dwellings that must operate like business I think it sounds wordy
(D) that, as dwellings, they must also operate like businesses hold
(E) to be a dwelling that must also operate as a business I think it sounds wordy

OA and Source?

Thanks

As v/s like

Comparison is between 2 functions of Cooperative apt houses-one as dwelling and one as business

as -also means in the "capacity of"

I work as a librarian

B., C and D eliminated

Since cooperative houses are plural, choose A
