C is wrong, the parallel structure is not there.
E is wrong, as Hally's comet will do....that's kinda wordy. "Will" alone should be enough.
B is wrong, way too long.
A could be right. I seriously don't see anything wrong in A, the only problem I have is it sounds a bit repetitive. "Will pass" I think the word "will" alone is enough.

Btw, if I could make one suggestion.....please underline the sentence to be replaced or at least bold it...

hello,
The sentence here seems to 'compare' two comets.When we compare two similar objects ,I believe we should use ''as''(ram can work as' hard 'as' kriss. x PASSES IN THE SAME WAY AS z.)

That rules out the first two choices, also the B) SEEMS TO be WAY OUT (IS PASSING TO )
C ) ''AS HALEY'S COMET 'means that commenlin(watevr comets) will pass as (not in these sense of ''like'' or comparision) but in the meaning of will become a haley's comet.Which jus alters the actual meanin itself.
now between D and E, BOTH SEEM OK.
bUT I gues D IS BETTER AS IT IS SIMPLE and also IT HAS something to do with the verb coming b4 the subject, makes a better sense.('as will' compared to ''will do'').
have fun!

option D it is.
will takes care of the action being compared in the first clause.
