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.
