^ B ^

(A)the comparison is wrong.

(C) there is no auxilary agreement. "are" & "have"

(D) "like" is wrong. while comparing verbs we should use "as"

(E) "as" is wrong. while comparing nouns we should use "like"

Eliminating other choices except B.

Why B? Whats wrong with C?

Let's look at C.

As interest rates are rising, so have consumer and producer prices.

Here 'are' and 'have' are not in accordance.
The sentence can be rephrased as:

As interest rates are rising, so are consumer and producer prices.
