'Like' never used to represent examples in the GMAT. We always use 'such as'. Hence Incorrect.

Uses correct 'such as' for displaying examples. Also maintains verb tense consistency between both and involve. Hence Correct

'all' not required here as we are referring to two things only - Rugby and Football. 'Both' fits better here. Hence Incorrect

Verb - Tense error between 'both' and 'involve'. Hence Incorrect

First split: like vs such as --> A and B wrong
Second split: all vs both --> we are talking about two sports, it has to be both --> D wrong
Third split: SV agreement --> E wrong

Ans C
