I believe the answer is B and not A.
In A, 'grains of sand or of pebbles' means grains of sand or grains of pebbles. But 'Grains of pebbles' doesn't make sense.

thank you.

this is problem of count and non count of nouns. very basic but not easy at all. we need to meet this case many times to remember count and noun count problem of this type

Subject :- "tiny flecks of celestial detritus"(Plural) Verb :- "burn"(Plural)
Eliminate D and E.

A is wrong because ‘of pebbles’ – prepositional phrase and cannot be compared with noun ‘grains’ (parallelism either side of conjunction).However, ‘burn up speeding' – is not correct may be due to wrong idiomatic usage’ .
Eliminate A.

Between B and C, the difference is only 'Which',
which can be ambiguously refer to 'pebble', 'detritus' or flecks.

so better go without 'which'. Hence B.
