what is the difference between похоже and кажется?

The same as between "it looks like" and "it seems". They are synonyms in this context.

Похоже is used when people look like someone else. Кажется is 'it seems'. I didnt know there was any context where they are interchangable

Wondering the same. I am ok with my ответ being неправ since it asked for it looks like, not, it seems, but i would like to know if кажется он готов is grammatical. Кажется я не знаю!

I wrote this also. Except i wrote кажется что он готов. Would the что be optional here?

why is "он выглядит готов" wrong?

Is my answer wrong? "Выглядит как ли он готов"

Yes, it is wrong. "Ли" is only used in questions and question-like sentences. For example: Проверь, готов ли он. Check if he is ready.
