Isn't the atoms of one gas should be compared with atoms of other gases? all options have compared Atoms with gases!

Is the question correct?

Yes, the question is comparing atoms and gases :)
The trap answer is A. The use of "as" in A is tricky and we need to remember that we use it only to compare actions.
As other inert gases do, Neon atoms never form stable molecules by chemically bonding with other atoms.
If a "do" were added, the question would have been correct :)

"As" is used to modify clause only, therefore A, B, C, D are out. "Like" is used to modify nouns.

(E) is the only valid choice.

As other inert gases, Neon atoms never form stable molecules by chemically bonding with other atoms.

A. As other inert gases, Neon atoms never form stable molecules by chemically bonding with other atoms. - Usage of "AS" is incorrect as is followed by a clause to compare actions
B. Neon atoms never form stable molecules, as other inert gases, by chemically bonding with other atoms. Usage of "AS" is incorrect as is followed by a clause to compare actions
C. Neon atoms, same as other inert gases, never form stable molecules by chemically bonding with other atoms. Usage of "AS" is incorrect as is followed by a clause to compare actions
D. Neon atoms never form stable molecules by chemically bonding with other atoms, as other inert gases. Usage of "AS" is incorrect as is followed by a clause to compare actions
E. Neon atoms, like other inert gases, never form stable molecules by chemically bonding with other atoms.CORRECT as "LIKE" is followed by a noun . Here like is followed by other inert gases modifying "Other Inert Gases" hence correct form of comparison
