You are correct. This question is wrought with many dubious expressions.

As virtually all the nation's 50 busiest airports are, New York's were built for an age of propellers, before jet planes weighing 800,000 pounds needed over two miles of runway.

(A) As virtually all the nation's 50 busiest airports are
(B) As with virtually all of the nation's 50 busiest airports
(C) Like virtually all of the nation's 50 busiest airports
(D) Like the cities where virtually all the nation's 50 busiest airports are
(E) Like other cities where virtually all the nation's 50 busiest airports are


Guys, the official answer is C!. This question is from the 1000 SCs old pack.

The official explanation says that A is wrong because of the verb tense "are" , since the non underlined portion uses simple past. It is not a question of parallelism, but of meaning.
