Split 1:
We see word like and we look for correct comparison. A, B, D are wrong comparisons.

Split 2:
Although the comparison is correct in both, C has the active voice. GMAT prefers active voice (C) to passive (E).

+1 for C.

Must be (C) as it correctly compares teachings of Sikhism to those of other religion -

Sikhism's teachings, like those (teachings) of most other religions, are codified in a book.

KAPLAN OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



Since this sentence creates a comparison, apply what you know about comparisons to it: comparisons need to involve like objects, so religions need to be compared to religions and teachings to teachings. Only answer choice (C) compares like objects by comparing Sikhism's teachings to those [teachings] of other religions.

An 800 test taker will be rewarded with some quick and easy points tor her knowledge of typically difficult concepts like modification or comparisons.
