A star will compress itself into a white dwarf, a neutron star, or a black hole after it passes through a red giant stage, depending on mass.

(A) A star will compress itself into a white dwarf, a neutron star, or a black hole after it passes through a red giant stage, depending on mass.
(B) After passing through a red giant stage, depending on its mass, a star will compress itself into a white dwarf, a neutron star, or a black hole.
(C) After passing through a red giant stage, a starâ€™s mass will determine if it compresses itself into a white dwarf, a neutron star, or a black hole.
(D) Mass determines whether a star, after passing through the red giant stage, will compress itself into a white dwarf, a neutron star, or a black hole.
(E) The mass of a star, after passing through the red giant stage, will determine whether it compresses itself into a white dwarf, a neutron star, or a black hole.

While B is tempting, I think it creates ambiguity. Only D is least troublesome.

Correction, I am not that D is actually better. I am not sure the 'whether' part is complete. I think the a black hole is missing into to create parralelism.

If anyone knows for sure, please comment. In the whether clause, do we need to repeat 'into' as in this example. And is there a general rule for that?

(A) A star will compress itself into a white dwarf, a neutron star, or a black hole after it passes through a red giant stage,........ ("depending on mass is to far from star").
(B) After passing through a red giant stage, depending on its mass, a star will compress itself into a white dwarf, a neutron star, or a black hole. (the prashe "after passing...." is better at the beginning or at the end. ..... "depending on its mass" is correctly modifiying the subject star
(C) After passing through a red giant stage, a star’s mass will determine if it compresses itself into a white dwarf, a neutron star, or a black hole. (if is not neccesary)
(D) Mass determines whether a star, after passing through the red giant stage, will compress itself into a white dwarf, a neutron star, or a black hole. (I think that the meaning changes... The first alternative says that will compress when passes through a red giant stage
(E) The mass of a star, after passing through the red giant stage, will determine whether it compresses itself into a white dwarf, a neutron star, or a black hole......... it's not parallel and the prashe "after ...." is in the middle of the sentence

in E , the Subject is Mass of a Star.
Can Mass of a star pass through something?

I feel the correct is B.

The answer is certainly A. I m damn sure about that. Other choices r all ambiguous, wordy and unidiomatic.
