A - out, it's not clear what these are refering to.
B-out, is which refering to expert?
C-ok
D-IMO too wordy
E- the ending of this choice is really awkward.

I pick C

We're comparing similarities between two things, an expert and a computer. So 'like' is appropriate. D sounds very disjointed, while E suggests the expert is to be used.

C is the best choice.

I pick C. Use like to compare, so A,B are out. D is too wordy and E not sure what is 'to be used'.

Another way to confirm this is C is to maintain parallel verb tense.

Proponents of artificial intelligence say they will be able to make computers that can understand English and other human languages, recognizes objects, and reason like an expert-computers that will be used for such purposes as diagnosing equipment breakdowns or deciding whether to authorize a loan.

OA is C.
OE: A correct answer must maintain parallel structure. In choice A, the three-part series( to diagnose..., deciding, ...or other purposes...) lacks parallelism. C, the best choice, replaces A's third element with/or such purposes as; this phrase functions as a stem for the other two elements, which are recast as two parallel phrases-diagnosing..or deciding...Thus, choice C not only manages the parallel structure but avoids the less effective other purposes such as these at the end of choice A. Choice E uses faulty parallel structure( to be used..., deciding ..., or the like). In B and D, which and the use of which introduce sentence elements that lack antecedents or reference. In adition, D is wordy.
