I chose C, it makes sense to compare people with people, so “investors” vs “many wealthy individuals”.

A. Like the care taken by investors to protect their assets through insurance policies and tax planning

B. As the care by investors to protect their assets through insurance policies and tax planning

C. Like investors who take care to protect their assets through insurance policies and tax planning

D. As investors' taking care to protect their assets with insurance policies and tax planning

E. Like insurance policies and tax planning for asset protection

Error analysis
A. Like should be followed by a noun, in this case like is followed by a clause.
B. It looks like "the care by investors" is compared with the "many wealthy individuals"
C. this option is correct like is followed by a noun and "who take..." modifies investors
D. Again illogical comparison. I am not able to elaborate on this.
E. grammatically correct, meaning is changed. Illogical comparison. "insurance..." compared with "wealthy investors".

In the original sentence, wealthy individuals are compared with 'care' and this does not makes any sense. Out of the remaining 4 choice only C correctly compares wealthy individuals to investors and hence is the correct choice.

Per meaning of the sentence, investors who protect their assets through insurance policies and tax planning are compared with wealthy individuals who choose to place their assets in offshore trust funds. Since two nouns are compared use of the word 'Like' is correct. But the original sentences incorrectly compares the care taken by investors to protect their assets through insurance policies and tax planning with wealthy individuals choose to place their assets in offshore trust funds.

Correct answer choice: C
