The things under comparison are just two supernovas. So the use of the superlatives, 'the most recently discovered and the largest' is ungrammatical. Drop A, B and C.
Between D and E, which both use the acceptable ‘the more recently discovered', the use of comparators such as larger and smaller are more appropriate. That is why E.
