Still very confused about comma use in this OA. Help would be awesome.

what is the issue in this question? How A, not D, is the correct answer?

I think D violates the parallel structure as D should have "that..." + "that..."
"like" is correct in this sentence. I cannot believe it.

I agree - D is better than A (GMAT prefers "such as" to "like" to introduce examples). Nonetheless the comma before "and" should not be there in either of the options.

The OA has been changed to D.
