Is it D?

I think the end must have Like instead of As since you are trying to compare to one thing and that is business. So that excludes A,E. C is too wordy. I think we need plural for businesses to be parallel with dwellings (since diff. dwelling can be diff. bus...) so D?

Same reasoning for D, though didn't like it much.

A IMO

in D 'they' is redundant.
I don't quite get here the difference between 'as' and 'like', but I feel that 'operate as businesses' is correct

I think after 'that' subject is required.
X has peculiar distinction(..) that (pronoun for X if not creating ambiguity, otherwise X)....
So, 'they' is not redundant
Opinions?

I vote for D

B, C and E are out for using "business". I think here we should use plural form "businesses".

A is out for using "of being" and "as"

226. 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
(E) to be a dwelling that must also operate as a business

Is it D?
A - of being dwellings - this is an incorrect usage.
B - of dwellings - changes the meaning. and business - must be plural.
C - the flow of the meaning is broken.
E - distinction to be a .... - is incorrect.

Please tell the correct answer.

after a google search, I found that the OA is A.

Interesting question, use of being is not always incorrect.

Great! so now I need to understand usage of a new topic related to "being" as well. Till date I have satisfied my curiosity with the understanding that "being" is always incorrect in GMAT :P

IMO A....

B,C,D are incorrect as like cannot be used here...we r comparing actions ..."must operate"...not noun...
Among A & E ...in E "as a business" seems wrong to me...

Indeed you'll find one question in OG 10 that has a correct answer with 'being' in it. This is 2nd such question I came across.
