E here......

"will " in C n D changes the meaning.

also "likelihood of" is the correct usage.

OA pls?

I doubt whether "scale can rate". Hence will not prefer E.

E.astronomers have developed a scale that rates the likelihood of a particular asteroid or comet that may.
This means the scale rates the likelyhood of an asteroid/comet. Doesn't make sense.
C and D are closest. Prefer D.

C. astronomers have developed a scale to rate how likely a particular asteroid or comet will be to
D. astronomers have developed a scale for rating the likelihood that a particular asteroid or comet will
E. astronomers have developed a scale that rates the likelihood of a particular asteroid or comet that may.

D.

Only C and D were close for me: the "how" in C seems awkward. Even though the use of gerund is not very common in the GMAT, I'll choose D on this one.

likelyhood + that (a certain event) + will (occur/happen)

BTW: It's called the Torino Scale in case anybody's interested.
