An international team of astronomers working at telescopes in the Canary islands and Spain has detected at least 18 huge gas spheres estimated to have 5 to 15 times the mass of Jupiter, the solar system's largest planet.

(A) astronomers working at telescopes in the Canary islands and Spain has detected at least 18 huge gas spheres estimated to have 5 to 15 times the mass of Jupiter. No error here. Keep it in

(B) astronomers working at telescopes in the Canary islands and Spain has detected at least 18 huge gas spheres estimated to be 5 to 15 times Jupiter's mass what is 'the solar system's largest planet' modifying? Jupiter's mass? Doesn't make senese

(C) astronomers is working at telescopes in the Canary islands and Spain, having detected at least 18 huge gas spheres that are estimated at 5 to 15 times the mass of Jupiter changes the meaning: C says that the team is now working on telescopes in Canary Islands and Spain after discovering the 18 huge gas spheres

(D) astronomers, working at telescopes in the Canary islands and Spain, and has detected at least 18 huge gas spheres estimated at 5 to 15 times the mass of Jupiter 'and' is incorrect. working at telescopes and the detecting gas spheres are not two distinct activities. The team detected the gas spheres while working at telescopes

(E) astronomers, working at telescopes in the Canary islands and Spain, has detected at least 18 huge gas spheres they have estimated to be 5 to 15 times Jupiter's mass 'they' is incorrect. Team is singular. Astronomers is modifying team

B Is wrong bcoz the "solar system's largest planet " modifies the Jupiter not the mass of the Jupiter

C is wrong because preposition "at" is incorrectly used & "Having been" used incorrectly

D is wrong because of parallelism indicator "and"

E is wrong for the same as "B"

Now, why A is right "We should be careful with Subject here as TEAM of astronomers " so verb should singular , and sentence looks much better than other options
