Second 'Does' in choice D is not required beacuse the entire sentence after but describes the first novel

for eg, the book does not seem like a good read

(D) does not read like an apprentice work does : In D, you are having a clause after like; like cannot compare clauses, it can only compare nouns

Seem to read is not chosen, not because it is redundant, but because it is not as unequivocal as read or does not read. Seems to read gives a feel of being somewhat speculative, undecided and uncertain. This is way off from the text. That is the reason B and C are not preferred.

Originally published in 1950, Some Tame Gazelle was Barbara Pym’s first novel, but it does not read like an apprentice work.
(E) reads unlike an apprentice work

E changes the meaning. "Unlike" is used incorrectly. For e.g. Unlike the US, India is X.

Now read the sentence with E: Unlike an apprentice work, STG reads.

The sentence wanted to convey "how the novel reads." E ends up conveying "who" reads.
