Like vs As and IMO Like wins here ( C & D out)

E is out as which is placed incorrectly with out a preceding comma

A is not parallel.

B IMO is parallel ( is as characteristic of human beings as nest-building is of )

I weighed in a lot about of characteristic of vs characteristic for. latter is some thing I have never used and ruled out C & D again.

What is OA?

The reason I didnot choose B is because it doesn't look || ... is as ...... as is...

if this would have been ..... as is..... as is .... then I would have difinetely gone with "like" not "as".
