I'd go with A. - The parallel comparison here is b/w the traditional pharmacies and on-line drugstores.

B - 'As with the case of' sounds wordy and wrong
C - Comparison b/w traditional pharmacies and prescriptions.
D - Incorrect Idiom
E - Subject-Verb agreement error

C sounds better.

In (A), "As it is with traditional pharmacies" also has a secondary meaning.

In (B), 'have success' is awkward, successful is better.

In (D), As traditional pharmacies, so.... is incorrect because 'As' needs a clause

In (E), Like traditional pharmacies, the cornerstone - incorrect because of modifier problem

In C) it says "Prescriptions are the cornerstone..."

Shouldn't cornerstone be plural, because prescriptions are plural?
Or Prescription be singular to match with cornerstone?

here is what i think :

B to have success , sounds odd

C its comparing pharmacies (plural) with drug store (singular) ; so i wudnt count on it (dunno why the OA is c)

D as...,so... wrong

E wrong comparison...

do you guys agree with my view over C ?

A) on-line drugstores rely on prescriptions to be successful
--Here it is ambiguous.. can lead to twomeaning.
whether "on-line drugsstores to be successful" or " prescriptions to be successful

B) same as A.

C) proper comparison
prescriptions are cornerstone of successful online drugstores, as is the case with [ prescriptions are cornerstone of successfull] traditional pharmacies.

D)Same as A

E) comparing "traditonal pharmacy" with "cornerstone"
improper comparision.

C is the best

This is good one.

The Sentence is describing the importance of the prescriptions; relating two types of pharmacies.

So it is better to have “Prescriptions” as the subject of the sentence.

A – “It” is not clear referent
B – As is used to compare clauses – here “As” is missing verb;
C – The comparison correctly modifies “Prescriptions”
D – As,,So – unidiomatic
E – Incorrect comparison
