A - Wrong - "It" does not clearly represent either "A star" or " A black hole". Also, "depending on mass"! whose mass is it?
C - Wrong - modifier problem. It appears that star's mass is going thru red gain stage.
D - Wrong - Not sure of grammatical error;however, the emphasis of the statement is on Mass of the star rather than star itself.
E - Wrong - Like option C, this one also has modifier problem.

B - Correct - Correct modifiers i.e. "A star" is modifying both "After passing through a red giant stage" and "depending on its mass".

probably because of 2 modifyers at the beginning of the sentence.
