Both are used for comparison, but whereas is used with preposition in. Unlike is used without preposition.

Usage of whereas and parallel construction is being tested.
The adverb clause correctly uses whereas to show opposition. The usually is that there should be a comma when using whereas to begin a sentence.
A is the correct answer. Correct reference subjects and parallel.
B -> Incorrect subject Whereas the tiny tubesâ€¦â€¦â€¦, birds
Use of Unlike is incorrect in C/D/E for incorrect subject comparision.
C -> Unlike mammals,â€¦.., birdsâ€™ tubes
D -> Unlike mammals,â€¦.., the tubes
E -> Unlike the tiny tubesâ€¦â€¦.., in birds
