In its most recent approach, the comet Crommelin passed the Earth at about the same distance and in about the same position, some 25 degrees above the horizon, that Halley’s comet will pass the next time it appears.

(A) that Halley’s comet will pass
(B) that Halley’s comet is to be passing
(C) as Halley’s comet
(D) as will Halley’s comet
(E) as Halley’s comet will do



What's wrong with "that" in a?
Is it impossible that the clause after "that" modifies position?
I might be wrong, but I think that I've seen "the same X that Y is Z" <- this structure somewhere.

that is relative pronoun use to refer noun
In this sentence we are comparing the way---the comet Crommelin passed as will Halley's comet
D & E
Do in E is misleading

(A) that Halley’s comet will pass
(B) that Halley’s comet is to be passing
(C) as Halley’s comet--> changes the meaning
(D) as will Halley’s comet
(E) as Halley’s comet will do--> use of "do" is incorrect here use "will" is sufficient for the implied comparison.

"That" is used without comma because the clause it introduces is essential one, hence A and B are wrong.

'that' is wrong because comparison is being done by two things - distance and position .If we use 'that' , then it modifies only position and not distance;furthermore , 'some 25 degrees above the horizon' is an appositive modifies 'position' and so it is wrong to say 'that' is not correct after comma.for example;

I like to read the book that is blue--> correct
I like to read the book , "bible" , that is blue --> is also correct.

D is correct since 'As' is correct here because it compares action 'passed' of Crommelin and Halley’s comet .
C - > Wrong because 'As' is used in wrong comparison :- verb with noun
E-> Wrong because 'will do' redundant.
