though i selected the correct ans I need some help to eliminate option D. And if we need to make this correct with "As" is "As do" will be correct (just for my knowledge, I know this is not listed in any ans option)

Like is a preposition, used before a noun or pronoun, to say that two things are similar, hence correct answer must be (A) comparing arid regions with Ariba...

You need to use the verb, when using "as". Howevere in this case "as do" is not correct, because the verb is "must import" (not just "import"), You cannot replace "must" with "do". So the correct sentence would be:
Ariba must import many of its fruits and vegetables from neighboring lands, as must many arid regions.

However in absence of "must", the following would be correct:
Ariba imports many of its fruits and vegetables from neighboring lands, as do many arid regions.

+1 to (A).

"Like" is correctly used to compare nouns.
