Elimination:-

1. Where vs in which
'Where' is used for physical location; 'sites' are not physical location.So, A and D goes off.

2. As vs Like
'As' is used to compare actions and 'like' is used to compare nouns.
A and C goes off.

Hence E is the correct answer.

A. As with those of humans, the DNA of grape plants contains sites where (Use of AS is wrong here, Like would be more appropriate - Correct use would have been : As it is with those of humans)
B. As human DNA, the DNA of grape plants contain sites in which (same as A)
C. As it is with human DNA, the DNA of grape plants, containing sites in which
D. Like human, the DNA of grape plants contain sites where (Should be: Like human DNA, the DNA)
E. Like human DNA, the DNA of grape plants contains sites in which (Correct)

Simple concept of GMAT SC

We cannot use ''As'' to compare 2 things, instead, we use ''like'' .

So in 2 secs we can eliminate A,B,C.

Answer D is wrong because they are trying to compare human and the DNA of grape --> out.

Answer E uses the correct idiom ''Like X, Y '' and compares ''human DNA'' and '' DNA of grape''.

So E is correct.

Comparison should be between stuff of a same genre.
Like should be used to compare nouns. These rules left us with nothing but E.
