I will go for E on this one! Astronomer as opposed scientists? That's too much of an speculation.

D conveys the meaning in the best possible way. It also avoids passive voice.

Correct Answer: (D)

Choice (A) is incorrect because the phrase "using the Hubble telescope" does not have a noun to modify.

Choice (B) is incorrect because the phrase "using the Hubble telescope" still does not have a noun to modify.

Choice (C) offers a noun, "astronomers," but it is too far from the phrase "using the Hubble telescope."

In choice (E), the phrase "with the aid of the Hubble telescope" does not have a noun to modify.

Choice (D) offers a noun, "astronomers," and places it immediately after the modifying phrase "using the Hubble telescope."

Vivek.
