E. Firstly, we compare two nouns, so we need like. A and C are out because compare horns with rhino. E is correct

I agree with E.

When you have an appositive like this, you look at the subject which comes after the comma, so here it would be "the Sumartran rhino". This means we're comparing rhinos. The original sentence is comparing something else, but we don't know what. We're told "like those of the African white & black rhinos...". So find the answer that compres the white and black rhino with the Sumatran rhino and you've found your winner.
