A is correct.
You don’t even need to stress on as vs like in this question as all the answer choices other than A are wrong.

Like means “similar to” or “in a manner similar to”.

(B) who, establishing a mosque in the building, used the Acropolis like – establishing and used not parallel
(C) who, when he had established a mosque in the building, used the Acropolis like – we don’t need when and past perfect here. Moreover as should be used instead of like.

D and E are way too off.

Answer A

"as" is correct in comparison to "like" and "to be". So, B, C and D are out.

Out of A and E, A seems to be logical and correct.
