I do not think one needs to delve too deep into this simple exercise of proper and parallel idiom namely "as much by … as by".
Only A and B do that but A is wrong for using like for denoting admittedly examples.

A,D we can eliminate for using like.
E is very awkward and lack llism also
..C lack llism.."as much by nonpoisonous imitation as (missing by) the true"
B is answer

Species that are colorful and aggressive in appearance like, for example, the deadly coral snake are so numerous that in general predators are deterred as much by nonpoisonous imitation as by the true appearance of poisonousness.

A) like, for example, the deadly coral snake are so numerous that in general predators are deterred as much by nonpoisonous imitation as by the true appearance of poisonousness
One cannot use like to present example.

B) such as the deadly coral snake are so numerous that predators are deterred as much in general by nonpoisonous imitation as by the true appearance of poisonousness


C) such as the deadly coral snake are so numerous that in general predators are deterred as much by nonpoisonous imitation as the true appearance of poisonousness
The structure "as much by X as by Y" is not followed.

D) like the deadly coral snake are so numerous that, in general, predators are deterred as much by nonpoisonous imitation as the true appearance of poisonousness
1. 'like' cannot be used to present example.
2. In case the sentence wanted to show comparison, there must be a comma after the "coral snake". "Like" can be followed by noun or noun phrase.


E) -- for example, the deadly coral snake -- are in general so numerous that predators are deterred as much by nonpoisonous imitation as the true appearance of poisonousness
1. By shifting the "in general", the option has changed the meaning of the sentence and goes against the logic of the original sentence presented.
2. The structure "as much by X as by Y" is not followed.


Thus, option B.
