IMO D.

Modifier that modifies Soccer is correctly placed before Soccer separated by a comma.

- Like cannot be followed by a clause, hence A and D out.
- "a most" is incorrect, we should use "the most", hence B out.
- Letter E changes the meaning, because it does not specify Cameroon, hence E out.

So, the correct answer is C.

I don't get this question.

"like" is used to compare nouns, so there shouldn't be a verb coming after "like". This gets rid of A and D, which have got the 'it is' (noun +verb).
B changes the original meaning - we need to the say 'the most popular', not just 'a popular'.
E also drops the 'in Cameroon", so this is also incorrect.
Additionally, in B and E, we seem to be comparing a sport (soccer) to a country (Cameroon), making for a nonsensical comparison.
This leaves us with C as our best answer - correct comparison and no verb after "like
