Like Darwin and his fruitful voyage on the Beagle, Banks’s trip with Captain Cook on the Endeavour inspired and shaped his remarkable career in natural science.

Quote:
A) Like Darwin and his fruitful voyage on the Beagle, Banks’s trip with Captain Cook on the Endeavour inspired and shaped his remarkable career in natural science

We can't compare "Darwin and his voyage" to "Bank's trip". Also, "his" is referring to?

Quote:
B) Just as Darwin had a fruitful voyage on the Beagle, Banks’s trip with Captain Cook on the Endeavour inspired and shaped a remarkable career in natural science

Again, can't compare "Darwin" to "Bank's trip".

Quote:
C) Like Darwin’s fruitful voyage on the Beagle, Banks’s trip with Captain Cook on the Endeavour inspired and shaped a remarkable career in science

Proper comparison. :please

Quote:
D) Just as Darwin’s fruitful voyage on the Beagle, Banks sailed with Captain Cook on the Endeavour, inspiring and shaping his remarkable career as a natural scientist

"Just as" needs to be a clause. There's no working verb here. "Darwin's" can't be compared with "Banks". What is "his" referring to?

Quote:
E) Like Darwin’s fruitful voyage on the Beagle, Banks sailed with Captain Cook on the Endeavour, which inspired and shaped a remarkable career in natural science

"Darwin's fruitful voyage" can't be compared with "Banks"...also, "which" is referring to the ship Endeavour, which could not have "inspired and shaped a career." Well, it could...but given the intended meaning, we assume the sentence is trying to say that the voyage inspired his career, not the ship itself.

Hi Experts
Although the comparison in C seems to be slightly logical when compared to other options, I read that "like" can never be used before prepositional phrases so how can C be correct.

Did this within 30 seconds by POE.
1. We need like and not as since we are comparing 2 nouns- banks and Darwin.
2. Reject the options that have an Illogical comparison - in most cases a noun is compared to a possessive.

Hope it's clear.
Kudos for appreciation please.
