Like is used to compare nouns.
As is used to compare actions.


In this question, we are comparing actions (play guitar).

So it will be B) As

Never mind think this question is wrong...the OA is 'like' but, as Nakib pointed out, 'like' is used to compare two nouns, not two actions...

'As' also does not look correct because one of the connotations of 'as' is 'at the same time'....which clearly does not fit in...

Awesome post.

As can also be used when referring to a position
eg : he works there as a janitor (position of a janitor)
he works there like a janitor (the way a janitor does)

both are correct.
