First of all we cannot have 'Like'. the tissues do contain tooth and bone and not something else which are like tooth and bone. Also it is ambigious whether its the tissues found in the organ or the tooth and bone found in the organ. E clears this ambiguity and does not contain 'Like'. It should be E
