I made the question yesterday and initially got the same as razrulz. But it's wrong.

At frist we agree that it has to start with "as", because it's a comparison.

Secondly we need "will" in order to make clear that the comet will pass the earth .

"...the comet Crommelin passed the Earth at about the same ditance...as will Halley’s comet the next time it appears."

This is absolutely sufficient; the "do" might be redundant or distort the parallellism.

D seems to be correct.

In E, the "as Halley's comet will do" makes the comparison absurd.

D actually need to be read as: "as will Halley's comet (pass) the next time it appears".
