X lies at milky way's center and [at] many of Z....
where at many of Z??? A clearly says at center and in B it's missing.

theory of relativity
theory of planetary motion

These are correct. But if you describe the theory in a clause then we must use "that"
Which ones do you think are correct?

The theory that planets move around Sun is now well accepted.
The theory of planets moving around the Sun is now well accepted.
The theory of planetary motion is now well accepted.

Yes, B distorts the intended meaning of the sentence altogether. Kap800 really stresses "meaning SCs" in the last 1/3. Always reread the sentence after you have selected an answer choice to confirm the meaning.
