HST will capture light from sources 20 times fainter (weaker) than those (sources) that...

D looks perfect and parallel.

just my guess, D stands a better position than A for the sake of brevity, "than" vs "compared to"

whats wrong with A....

Isn't greater than, fainter than the proper idiom?
X fainter compared Y seems weird

I thought "compared to' would be the right grammatical structure....

I found this article from new york times
http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.h ... A96F948260

This is the line from this article onw hcih the above question is based:
Once positioned in space, the telescope will capture light from stars and other sources 20 times fainter than can be detected by ground-based instruments.

But to my dismay the correct option is not in the given options. reply2spg, wht is teh source?
