"C" from my side too ..

I have a question here ..

In any case is it fair to choose "E" because "E" has expression missing like talking n all .

we need 'like idiots' as we're comparing nouns (clients vs idiots)
(B) and (D) are out.

(E) is also out as "who were mentally deficient.. etc" is redundant for the modifying idiots.

Between A and C, I'll go with C. A uses 'like they were' which is wrong since like should only be used to describe nouns. 'as' in C is better since we're comparing clauses.

C it is.

E is out because idiots are mentally deficient (Ywilfred's reasoning) - E results in introducing redundancy within the sentence

Even I dismissed E because it did not mention "talking" but, Ywilfred's analysis is correct here!

the rule is:
like + noun
as + clause

hence B is not correct
