A. Unlike General Motors and Chrysler, Ford did not

B. Though General Motors and Chrysler did, Ford did not

C. As opposed to General Motors and Chrysler, Ford did not

D. While General Motors and Chrysler did, Ford did not

E. Contrary to what General Motors and Chrysler did, Ford did not

Other than A and B, all are wordy and awkward.

A is short and clear.

(A)

Unlike X, Y is correct idiomatic usage, hence correct answer must be (A)

Guys

I understand that A is a clear pick that's because of the correct usage of Unlike with a noun. However, Are all the other options wrong solely for being wordy and awkward?

Abhishek009 you mentioned that the correct usage of idiom Unlike is: Unlike X, Y. Could we also say that Like follows the same rule and that Like is also an idiom? such as Like X, Y? Now on to more generalization can all the single syllable comparison makers besides "as" follow an idiomatic usage.
