Because young children do not organize their attention or perceptions systematically, like adults, they may notice and remember details that their elders ignore.

I agree with the answer C. But i Have a silly doubt.
If we chose the option C, are we sure that the word "they" refers to children and not adults.

Well, in your Gmat prep always have on mind that you are not asked to find a perfect answer. you are asked to find the best answer. Here "they is not even underlined so you dont even have an option to change it.

In my mind it is clear that "they" refers to children, since pronoun their is already clearly used relating to childern, so it only makes sense that "they" refers to children.

To compare nouns, 'like' is used.
Here one action is being compared to the other action. Hence, 'as' is required.
Drop out A and B.
Since actions are compared, verb is required. C and E are out.
IMO D.

IMO 'D'

In gmat world, usually the pronoun should refer to the nearest noun.. but many times it doesnt.

So here 'they' refers to the logical noun i.e. 'children'

COmparing actions so "AS" will be used. Also we need do to compare the actions of children to actions of adults and not compare actions of children to adults.

Therefore D is the best answer
