who is "responding to the public’s fascination"?

the scale or the astronomers? eliminate A,B

You rate the likelyhood that something "will" happen, not something "may/might" happen. Eliminate E.

a comet will be to collide VS a comet will collide

IMO D

C and D are close. I think D scores over C, because in C - a scale to rate how likely a particular asteroird or comet will be to collide with earth --- focuses more on asteroid or comet itself. The purported objective of the scale is to rate the LIKELIHOOD that something will happen (that "something", in this case is the collision of asteroids/comets with earth).

This a rather subtle difference but D scores because it clearly delineates the purpose behind the creation of the scale.
