E...
an infinitive (to) should follow the non-underlined part.

As vs Like....

'Like' is used to compare persons and 'as' for objects.

I also agree with E.

As for the explantion on 'as' vs 'like', this is what Kaplan has to say:

like / such as
If youтАЩre ever given a choice on the GMAT, choose such as. The GMAT writers prefer 'such as' to 'like' when what follows are examples; to these writers like means тАЬsimilar to.тАЭ

I prefer salty snacks such as potato chips to sweet snacks such as candy bars.
IтАЩve never met anyone like him before.

Let me hop in here. ( E should be it )

"such as" means for example.

Here is the classic way of explaining this rule.

Please bring some fruits like oranges - Meaning dont bring orange but some fruit similar to orange.
Please bring some fruits such as oranges - Meaning brings fruits similar to orange and if you bring orange it is ok.

Vote for E too for the following reasons:
A) unidiomatic phrase "such ...like"
B) unnecessarily introduce another subsetence; unidiomatic phrase "such ...like"
C) "intended" gave a hint to use "to separate" rather than "separating"
D)unnecessarily introduce another subsetence;
