D/E are wrong because it says a diameter which modifies the neutron star and star is not a diameter.

B changes the meaning to nonsense one by saying matter of sun. Hence wrong.
C : the clause after BUT is incorrectly used here in the modifying phrase. A correctly uses the modifying construction hence is correct

Hope this helps..!!

a) correct

b) 12 miles in diameter but contains half the matter of the Sun.(Phrase has to be participial otherwise will create a fragment )

c) 12 miles in diameter but it contains half as much matter as the Sun (same as above)

d) a diameter of 12 miles but containing half as much matter as the Sun's (sun's usage is wrong)

e) a diameter of 12 miles but contains half the Sun's matter (looks like the start has taken half of sun's matter)
