I was confused between A & E. Went with E as it was short and conveyed the same meaning

In D you are comparing social behaviors to mothers.

Consider GMAT Ninja’s nice example that goes along the lines of “I like food more than my wife” or “I like food more than my wife does” which version will keep him married?

There is no implied “do” on the gmat. This is a pretty typical trap.

Using same social behavior as their mother's
If this was the option D would it have been considered correct??

D would have been correct if it had ended with mothers’ instead of mothers.
Please comment if this reasoning is valid??

Hi,
Considering A, can I conclude that 'that' and 'as' can be used interchangeably wrt comparisons? Can 'as' always be replaced with 'that'?
Young monkeys demonstrate X, Y, and Z 'as/that' their mothers do.
Can I use both 'as' and that here?

Hi RenB,

Same... as is a valid structure. Here's an official question that uses same as in the correct option.
