I would go for B because:

Because young children do not organize their attention or perceptions systematically, _____, they may notice and remember details that their elders ignore.
i.e. young children tend to notice things that adults ignore, therefore, they are not like adults in that sense.

(B) unlike an adult----------- correct, unlike means not like adults
(D) as adults do
(E) as an adult

I think "do not organize" already convey the meaning that childern are unlike adults and not required "unlike" again. I will go with D.

Oh that's the logic... How did I miss it..?
Well, Thanks humans for correcting me

This is the "like" vs. "as" lesson - be careful, because we all mess this one up in everyday English:

"like" is used to compare nouns. Just nouns - nothing else.
"as" is used to compare clauses (ie, a phrase that includes a verb - could include a noun, too, but has a verb)

We have defaulted, in spoken English, to using "like" all the time - but we're speaking incorrectly when we do so.

So, logically, the sentence is not just comparing children to adults, but what children don't do to what adults do. Children don't organize systematically. Adults do organize systematically. Because the verb is part of this comparison, we have to use "as."

And we can't just use the "as" - we have to say "as adults do" b/c, again, we're comparing the verb.

A "like" sentence might say: Bobby's eyes, like those of his brother Peter, are blue. I'm not comparing "are blue" to something else - in fact, there isn't even another verb in the sentence to compare with. Here, I really am just comparing Bobby's eyes to Peter's eyes (just nouns), so I use "like.

It cant be A or B as its comparing an action.

IMO D.
As is followed by a clause. And here 'do' is necessary to make the comparison parallel.
