(C) as do

I would vote for A correct as it is.

as does subsitute for her passionate interest in history places her within the French classical tradition.

B is wrong. So do is not the correct idiom
C is wrong. passionate interest is singular, do does not agree
D and E are wordy.

Agree with A.

X place her with in the French, as does <place her within the French > Y

X place her with in the French, as Y does <place> her within the French

691. The aristocratic values expressed in the writings of Marguerite Yourcenar place her within the French classical tradition, as does her passionate interest in history, particularly Roman history.
(A) as does
(B) so do
(C) as do
(D) so is the case with
(E) similarly, does

i can discard B and C as her passion is singular ,what else can help to either choose the right answer or eliminate wrong ones.

Answer A

"as" fits best for comparison of two things here.

IMO A.
On the basis of singular object , her passionate interest in history , we can eliminate B and C. C is wordy and unidiomatic. Now its between A and E - I think we we include similarly in the sentence it needs to repeat the subject verb object format again, which is not the case here.
I would go with A , however, I can not provide a distinct reason to eliminate E.

I'd say A, even though E may be correct as well.

"A" is fine. Good question! Seems simple, but makes you feel worried. :-D

Hi, guys. it should be "D". Choices A,B,C and E make no sense logically since they all indicate that her passionate in roman history place her in the French tradition.

The takeaway is that "do" is used for plural subjects and "does" is used for singular subjects.

can someone please confirm this.

"her passionate interest" is singular, so "does" is required here.
IMO A

No worries! I never fault anybody for asking the question. Better to ask your question here than wonder about it during the test... :-)
