her pationate interest does not do...

so B and C are out

D and E are wordy. In case of E 'similarly' doesn't make sense.

ghantark - you may want to read some grammar book that can help you answer these basic questions.

A

"interest" is singular. So B and C are out. D and E are unnecessarily wordy.

"so" and "as" both can work as an adverb or conjunction.

"so" is generally used in situations of citing reason or giving inference.
"as" is used to show one to one relationship (in case of adverb) and used to show that two actions occurred at the same time(in case of conjuction).

Examples:
I love GMATCLUB so much that I can't live without it. : Used as adverb. Modifying love.
Its a good website, so it will be useful to you. : Used as conjunction. Second clause is the inference.

They worked as a computer works.: Used as adverb
They were eating as they were watching the TV. : Used as conjunction


"Does" is used with singular subjects and "do" is used with plural subjects. Both acts as verbs or replacements of verbs.
In the sentence given "does" is replacement of "place". This (replacement thing) is a frequently tested in GMAT.

Hope this helps.

nice explanations! I got totally tricked by this one...one more to watch out for...

========
(C) as do (values do and value does); so should be in comparison whereas 'as' as can be additional qualifiers
