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.

we should look at "same " in dictionary

same has two meaning: the same thing and the two things alike.

same can go with "that" and "as"
when going with "that" , the object of the following clause is "the same"

when going with "as" there can be one of two meaning above
after "as" we can use a noun which is the same as previous noun
or
we can use only subject of the second clause to show the second context of the comparion, not showing the second noun

apply inhere

we can use only the subject of the second clause. D and E are correct

hard for me

same has 2 meaning,
the two things similar
in this meaning
we use a noun after the "as" this noun is similar to the first noun
your pen is the same as mine

second meaning is : one thing

in this meaning we use the subject after "as" to provide the second context because there is one thing, not two things.

I might be wrong, but I think that I've seen "the same X that Y is Z" <- this structure somewhere.


the same that
this phrase is easier to use . that-clause is a relative pronoun. I speak the same language that you speak.

but the phrase "the same+noun+as+ second clause " is harder. in the phrase, only the different thing which has the same +noun is retain. I used to make mistake by repeating the noun again. this is not idomatic because the noun need to appear one time
I speak the same english as you
here there is one kind of english and this english appear one time in the first clause of comparison. in the second clause we need to show the different factor of comparision
we can not say
I speak the same english as the english you do. this is redundant and not idiomatic.

come back to our question.
in d
as will harley commet
in here the position and distance do not appear in the second clause of comparison.

this pattern is shown in dictionary but we misuse it often . I make mistake also

Option E has nothing wrong grammatically. Option D is just more economical than option E in expressing the idea - you would recollect that we are supposed to choose the best option from the given choices.
