Although they are smaller, chipmunks are ________ most other ground squirrels.
A. like to
B. like as
the correct answer was 'C'.but I think it must be 'D'.
I thought we can use 'like' between two singular name and 'alike' after plural name or two singular.
Noun + is like + Noun Noun + Noun + are alike Noun (plural) + are alike
why the answer is 'like'?
