Its E.
Question is testing here correct idiom and comparision.
View X as Y is correct idiom and like is also used correctly for correct comparision.

Can somebody tell?
If we faced such option instad of E, would it be correct?

or, regarding this, it is wrong?

It would probably be wrong as the meaning changes. You want to show similarity between sewall and seventeenth-century colonist, hence " like " is preferred.
For comparing nouns use " Like "
For comparing actions use " as "

Samuel Sewall, as seventeenth-century colonist, - could imply that Samuel Sewall disguised as seventeenth-century colonist, viewed marriage ......."

Samuel Sewall, as seventeenth-century colonist, - also could imply that Sewall is representative of seventeenth-century colonist,..

Both of these are not very appropriate in the context of the sentence.

Hope the explanations help to some extent.

Thank you for your reply!

That is exactly what I am trying to say!

Samuel Sewall, as seventeenth-century colonist, - also could imply that Sewall is representative of seventeenth-century colonist,..

All seventeenth-century colonists viewed marriage as a property arrangement rather than.
Samuel Sewall was one of them. And he thought also so.
Why can not this be true?

It is like next 2 examples.
1. John like a manager does this and that (John is manager's assistant). It is correct construction.
2. John as a manager does this and that (John is a manager and his duties are ...). And it is correct consruction too.

(E) Samuel Sewall, like other seventeenth-century colonists, viewed marriage as a property arrangement rather than
(E new) Samuel Sewall as seventeenth-century colonist, viewed marriage as a property arrangement rather than

So it makes me think that options E and E new are identical in their sense.
like other = as?

------------------------------------------
For comparing nouns use " Like "
For comparing actions use " as "
------------------------------------------
It is true for sure. But maybe we can not use it here.

I desided to separate two thes posts.

Do I understand you right?
You think that my option E new will be wrong because it carries two meanings. (And it has to carry only one)
E new. Samuel Sewall, as seventeenth-century colonist, viewed marriage as a property arrangement rather than
1. Samuel Sewall, as seventeenth-century colonist, - could imply that Samuel Sewall disguised as seventeenth-century colonist, viewed marriage ......."
2. Samuel Sewall, as seventeenth-century colonist, - also could imply that Sewall is representative of seventeenth-century colonist,..

And the original E contains only one meaning.
E. Samuel Sewall, like other seventeenth-century colonists, viewed marriage as a property arrangement rather than
Samuel Sewall was seventeenth-century colonist, and like all of them viewed marriage as a property arrangement rather than/

Maybe my problem with final understanding is because this meaning "2. Samuel Sewall, as seventeenth-century colonist, - also could imply that Sewall is representative of seventeenth-century colonist,.." is not cleat to me. Why is he disguised - where does it come from?
