LIKE in the beginning of the sentence requires the Noun after the like phrase to be similar in comparison..
The two things disappearing are
1) the forest
2) the animals living in them

The ORIGINAL sentence follows proper comparison so is correct
A

Why is D wrong - the 'animals disappearance' is compared to 'Like the beautiful old forests'.
Can someone explain this in detail?
