we need "as" for putting examples so we can rule out A and B
also parallelism is oki in E
C and D are wrong for incorrect parallelism

meaning of the sentence:
The majority of expenditure to fight vector borne diseases have been fouced on 2 things:
Immunization of human and obileration of the carriers with a pesticide.
Two examplles of diseases have been presesnted. Malaria and dengue

Error Ananlysis.
Subject and Verb:
Majority of expenditures. majority is a quantity word,which means more then one, hence the verb must be plural(have),as mentioned in the sentence
No pronoun errors
No tense errors
In order to present examples we must us such as. Like cannot present examples
parallelism:
The expenditure focuses on 2 things:
1.Immunizing humans or Obliterating the carriers.

POE:
A- statement A is wrong as it uses Like to present examples. two things are not Parallel. It should be the immunization and the obilerating of (noun is parallel to verb-ing of NOun)
B- Staement B is incorrect for the usage of like
C-Voids parallelism
D:Voids Parallelism
Introduces examples by using such as.
follows parallelsim;immunizing humans and obliterating the carriers

you are introducing examples.... so use of as is preferred over the use of like.... so A and B are out.... out of C, D, and E.... look for parallelism in either or construction.... prepositions are used correctly only in E

Ans is B.
First step is to split i.e. see the differences in the first and the last words of the choices.
First word has to be like because as is used when it is preceded by such. For instance if it had been 'most expenditure to combat vector diseases such as malaria, ...' then it would have been correct to use such.
Thus ans is A or B. Between these two B is following parallelism

Most expenditures to combat such vector-borne diseases like malaria and rabies have focused either on the immunization of humans or on obliterating the carriers with pesticides.

A like malaria and rabies have focused either on the immunization of humans or on obliterating
(Incorrect) As is used to introduce examples, Like can only be used when we are implying similar behaviour ... Also, here a complex gerund is made parallel to simple gerund which isn't possible

B like malaria and dengue have focused either on immunization of humans or on the obliteration of
(Incorrect) Again Like has been used ..

C as malaria and dengue have focused on either immunizing humans or on obliterating
(incorrect) Incorrect usage of either .. or .. it should be either X or Y rather than either X or on Y

D as malaria and dengue have focused on either immunizing of humans or on obliteration of
(Incorrect) Here complex gerunds are parallel but the correct form should be immunization of humans ...

E as malaria and dengue have focused on either immunizing humans or obliterating
(Correct) Two gerunds are parallel in correct form .. correct usage of either or ...
