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 Halleyâ€™s comet will pass the next time it appears.
(A) that Halleyâ€™s comet will pass
(B) that Halleyâ€™s comet is to be passing
(C) as Halleyâ€™s comet
(D) as will Halleyâ€™s comet
(E) as Halleyâ€™s comet will do
(A) and (B) are out since "the same X that Y" is not good here, since Hallay's comet will not be in EXACTLY THE SAME POSITION next time.
(C) is out since we need a verb.
(E) is out since "will do" is redundant.
