A? This was a bit confusing but A seems like the best choice to me.

Is it "D" ?

Rationale: the commet Crommelin passed the earth at about the same distance .... as will Hally's commet the next time it appears. seems okay.

here Comparision is of an "action - passing".

any other views ?

E is best
"do" is needed to compare Crommelin's passing action to that of Haley.

"the comet Crommelin passed the Earth ... as Halley's comet will do[pass] next time..."

:beat Of course! The action of the Crommelin comet happened in the past so the use of "do", which refers to the past action "passed", to talk about the future passage of Haley's comet is unnappropriate here. :?

That is wrong reasoning. The action of Halley's comet is of course going to happen in future. But when an auxiliary verb such as will, can etc. is used, we do not need to repeat the main verb again as auxiliary verb. It is redundant.

I am too late for this I guess.

There are two things that are tested here. One is tense and another is idiom.

The idiom is same + blah blah + as
and ofcourse will is required.

Agree Anandnk but your explanation does not differentiate between D and E. D is best for the reason Gmatblast gave.
