Agree with Bhai, 'D' it is...

A - It sounds as if star passes through X depending on its mass.
B - Same as 'A'
C - 'it' has no referrant, 'it' can't refer to 'star' because star's is used to
modify mass.
D - Clear meaning.
E - Suggests 'mass of the star (rather than start itself) passes through red giant step'.

D is definitely the best among the choices...but I just feel that we need to determine whose mass is here ..." mass" alone is a little ambiguous as it can be "mass" of many other objects.
