apt houses function as dwelllings or businesses

comparison is between their usage/ actions and not actually amongst themselves

Eliminare B, C and E

we have corporate houses, so we need "dwellings"

Choose A

1. so many discussions about as/like. Like has no sense here
2. only "that" in A can modify "dwellings", but in B, can not

A beats B for the winner

My experience tells me that GMAT does not like "being" . Hence A is out. Out of all others D would be my preference.

Cooperative apartment houses have the peculiar distinction of being dwellings that must also operate as businesses.
(A) of being dwellings that must also operate as businesses
(B) of dwellings that must also operate like business
(C) that they are dwellings that must operate like business
(D) that, as dwellings, they must also operate like businesses - Suits best.
(E) to be a dwelling that must also operate as a business

idiom is distinction of.. so C & D are out.
like is used to compare noun.. while as is used to compare actions..
as is preferred.. as like is used for doing something..which is not exactly the thing ..but something similar to that..
So A remains..
What is the OA?
