A by POE

A. that a black hole lies at the center of the Milky Way and of
B. that a black hole lies at the Milky Wayâ€™s center and
C. that there is a black hole lying at the Milky Wayâ€™s center and
D. of a black hole lying at the Milky Wayâ€™s center and
E. of a black hole that lies at the center of the Milky Way and of

"Milky Way's center" distorts the meaning by referring only to the MW, instead of referring to the billions of other galaxies as well. B, C, and D - out.

E shifts focus from the center of the galaxies to the black hole. The question here is: what lies at the center of MW and other galaxies? Theory: A black hole.
