I have seen this question discussed in the forum so many times, still I am getting this one wrong. Hence the question once again.

3. During an ice age, the buildup of ice at the poles and the drop in water levels near the equator speed up the Earthâ€™s rotation, like a spinning figure skater whose speed increases when her arms are drawn in.
(A) like a spinning figure skater whose speed increases when her arms are drawn in
(B) like the increased speed of a figure skater when her arms are drawn in
(C) like a figure skater who increases speed while spinning with her arms drawn in
(D) just as a spinning figure skater who increases speed by drawing in her arms
(E) just as a spinning figure skater increases speed by drawing in her arms

I think E is correct, because "Just as ..." is used as a conjunction to join two main clauses. "Like" is used only to join two "nouns".

E is parallel and concise.
