C

3-2 split between merging vs and merges ... D&E out

in the remaining A,B,C, only C uses 'as nuclear reactors do' which is the right way to compare

Nuclear fusion is the force that powers the Sun, the
stars, and hydrogen bombs, merging the nuclei of
atoms and not splitting them apart, as in nuclear
reactors.

(A) merging the nuclei of atoms and not splitting
them apart, as in nuclear reactors
(B) merging the nuclei of atoms instead of splitting
them apart, like nuclear reactors
(C) merging the nuclei of atoms rather than split-
ting them apart, as nuclear reactors do
(D) and merges the nuclei of atoms but does not
split them apart, as is done in unclear reactors
(E) and merges the nuclei of atoms, unlike atomic
reactors that split them apart.

D and E are out because ", and merges" is not correct.
A and D create illogically parallel structure between in nuclear reactors and in what ??
B as is required here

C for me
