We use "like" to compare nouns and "as" to compare verbs. So, why is Option C correct here?

Here as is used to describe function/role.
Many people think Isaac as fiction writer i.e. people perceive him in role of writer.
Say

He acts as manager.So here we cannot say actions are compared but here he is acting in role of manager so usage of as is correct.
