A. as the principal does—ideas that will be used to bring him more votes, increasing his popularity among seniors, and other such benefits
errors
Act like vs act as like is correct as we are comparing two nouns
Pronoun errors- it is not clear what him and his stand for is it the principle or the leading candidate
such as should have been used to give examples in the end


B. as does the principal, which will be used to bring him more votes, increase his popularity among seniors, and bring other such benefits
as is wrong and also the modifier starting with which is wrong, pronoun ambiguity remains

C. like the principal, enabling him to have such benefits as bring in more votes and increasing his popularity among seniors
corrects the idiom acts like but introduces modifier error

D. like the principal—ideas that will be used to bring the candidate such benefits as more votes and increased popularity among seniors
correct . This choice corrects the idiom act like and also clears the ambiguity of pronoun. Correctly uses SUCH AS to introduce examples

E. like the principal does, to bring him more votes, increasing his popularity, and other benefits such as these
creates an error by adding does after like. Awkward construction

D
