Is A correct here? Like compares noun with noun, action with action. Here Like compares "many other 18th-century mathematicians who compiled huge logarithmic tables" with Edward Sang. Is it parallel?

A.Like - > who compiled blah blah is a relative clause , many other 18th century is an adjective modifying mathematician. So if you break it into barebones format it is correct.
B.Just like -> Correct usage :Just like X , so as Y.
C.Just as with -> Incorrect comparison.
D.As did - > as in comparison requires a clause.
E.As had -> Same as D

Hi Bluelagoon,

I understand that option A is the correct coz LIKE compares two NOUNS,in this sentence - mathematicians and Edward Sang.

As you said 'who.....tables' is a relative clause........
it will be right if I say---"Who" modifies mathematician?

Why option B is incorrect?
If we choose option B then what will go wrong with the sentence?Will it change the meaning?If yes , how?

Looking forward for clarification.....

"Like many other 18th-century mathematicians who compiled huge logarithmic tables, Edward Sang experienced great difficulty in trying to get his work published."

In this question i have a doubt regarding the usage of like.
We have learnt that like is used in comparison and is followed by a noun when we are using it for comparison.
In this sentence "Like many other 18th-century mathematicians" the noun is the underlined portion and the whole structure seems like a clause which does not look correct to me.
Instead the answer choice "As did" - option D seems a much better answer choice to me as it is used in the correct manner.

Kindly clear my doubt here in this regard.

Strange question. Although I answered correctly, I still don't like this question.

Comparison is between people.
