Correct idiomatic & Comparison is - Like X, Y

Like compact discs, which have increased in storage capacity over the years, digital video discs have more and more data squeezed into smaller spaces.

Correct answer will hence be (D)

Hi saurabhSuman / ishsingh96 ,

I agree with your point that D is loosing its meaning. But note that we donot have any option that is correct and is maintaining the meaning at the same time.

In such scenarios, change in meaning is always allowed.

E cannot be the right answer as it has Subject Verb Error as shown below:

E. Like that of compact discs, which has increased in storage capacity over the years, the technology used for digital video discs has allowed more and more data to be squeezed onto a smaller space --> Discs are plural. Hence, using 'has' is incorrect.

Does that make sense?
