Like Rousseau, Tolstoi rebelled against the unnatural complexity of human relations in modern society.

(A) Like Rousseau, Tolstoi rebelled - The use of 'like' is perfectly when it is used to compare nouns. Hence, (A) is the right answer.

(B) Like Rousseau, Tolstoi's rebellion was - here, the noun 'Rousseau' is being compared to 'rebellion' - this comparison is illogical. Hence, eliminate (B).

(C) As Rousseau, Tolstoi rebelled - This literally means that Tolstoi took the role/identity of 'Rousseau' to rebel. This does not make any sense. Hence, eliminate (C)

(D) As did Rousseau, Tolstoi's rebellion was - if you compare this to (A), (D) is certainly awkward. Hence, eliminate (D).

(E) Tolstoi's rebellion, as Rousseau's, was - here, we are literally equating Tolstoi's rebellion to Rousseau's rebellion. In other words, Tolstoi's rebellion took the identity of Rousseau's rebellion - this does not make any sense. Hence, eliminate (E)
