It is pretty straight, we can eliminate B and C...
In option A, that changes the meaning. So, it can be ruled out...
As the comets are compared, it is better to have the comet as subject in both the sentences and finally, D is ruled out...
IMO E...

(A) that Halley’s comet will pass
(B) that Halley’s comet is to be passing
(C) as Halley’s comet
(D) as will Halley’s comet
(E) as Halley’s comet will do

correct idiom "same.. as.. "


A, B are out --- incorrect idiom "same ..that.."

Comparing two phrases

C)Commet Cremilin passed the earth ... as.. Halley's commet next time it appears
Incorrect comparison
D)Commet Cremilin passed the earth ... as.. will Halley's commet next time it appears
= Commet Cremilin passed the earth ... as.. will [pass] Halley's commet next time it appears
= Commet Cremilin passed the earth ... as.. Halley's commet will [pass] next time it appears
E)Commet Cremilin passed the earth ... as.. Halley’s comet will do next time it appears
=Commet Cremilin passed the earth ... as.. Halley’s comet will [pass] do next time it appears
do is not neccessary..

Will go for D.
