Having the same or nearly the same characteristics

Dalip said: (Mar 16, 2011)  
Unique is also suitable here.

Anshu said: (Mar 23, 2011)  
It means unique is also right?

Sankalp said: (Jun 10, 2011)  
I think unique is not correct. Because unique gives an "exact" meaning.

Divya said: (Jun 27, 2011)  
Unique means the only one of its kind.

Alike means similar and so the answer.

Chinna said: (Sep 4, 2011)  
Unique should mention for particular things but alike means same as another.

Srilakshmi said: (Sep 22, 2011)  
Alike is perfect answer here.

Deepak said: (Oct 19, 2011)  
Alike is perfect word.

Venkat said: (Nov 30, 2011)  
Why alike is perfect answer ?

Can one please states some difference between the use of like and likely?

Neha said: (Dec 31, 2011)  
Like means having similar characteristic to another and here likely means probably (such as well might happen).

Zuck said: (Feb 13, 2012)  
ALIKE: Having resemblance or similitude, similar.

Arshad Khan said: (Mar 1, 2013)  
Alike is suitable here because we are comparing similarities. And other hand alike is use to separator here.

In the same or a similar way:

Ex : "the friends dressed alike"

Siri_Rgukt Basar said: (Dec 30, 2013)  
Twin brother mean all the things is not same so unique is not correct alike is correct.

Hoshang said: (May 10, 2014)  
Generally twins brothers looks alike i.e. same but the special word by which we can predict the exact option is BUT in the statement. So the answer is option D.

Hemakumar said: (Nov 2, 2014)  
Unique means single.

Alike means same this case twin brothers don't looks same i.e, alike.

Jegan Jeyaraj said: (Jul 29, 2015)  
Alike is correct. Because unique means the both are having same behavior but not possible. Alike means similar relation between them not same.

Neha said: (Jun 24, 2016)  
Yes, Alike is right because almost twin brothers look alike. Unique means single like me and you there is no similar things between you and me by looking.

Ashish said: (Mar 18, 2017)  
Alike is accurate answer.

Deb said: (Jan 31, 2018)  
I agree @NEHA.

Usha Sai Kiran said: (Jan 20, 2020)  
Hey, why can't we use the word UNIQUE?
