X lies at milky way's center and [at] many of Z....

theory of relativity
theory of planetary motion

These are correct. But if you describe the theory in a clause then we must use "that"
Which ones do you think are correct?

The theory that planets move around Sun is now well accepted. :yes
The theory of planets moving around the Sun is now well accepted. :no
The theory of planetary motion is now well accepted. :yes

Yes, B distorts the intended meaning of the sentence altogether. Kap800 really stresses "meaning SCs" in the last 1/3. Always reread the sentence after you have selected an answer choice to confirm the meaning.
