B, CDE are out coz of wrong comparison, A turns the essential clause to a non essential one.

Pluto must come right after the coma.
we are comparing pluto to other planets.
this eliminate C, D and E.
The orbit is closer to the sun or plutot is closer to the sun??
I think the sentence intends to say pluto is closer to the sun.

I choose B

IMO B.

C, D and E is out as it should be Pluto and not orbit to planets.
A is out as orbit is compared to Neptune

C, D and E are out because comparison is between planets.

A is awkward.

B remains

Unlike the other major planets, Pluto has a highly eccentric orbit and is thus closer to the Sun than Neptune is for blah blah blah.
