The first must be "astronomers". Among C,D and E i think that D is the best choice.

Even I marked D as ans. But given OA is C. This from one of the GMAT SETS test.

the correct idiom is "likely to be" not "likely be to" as in C ..!!

"likely + infinitive" is the right usage.

eg. The Zoman Empire is likely to fall.

"for rating" in D does not seem right....I went for C.

I guess the usage depends on context ....

Joey is a member of the committee that rates employee performance in this company.

Joey loves to rate his female colleagues.He gets special attention from them.

I am not sure if the example is right for the usage of "for rating"

Joey gets no extra salary for rating his colleagues.

This is a GMAT Set question. OA is C, but I am not comfortable with it.

C. astronomers have developed a scale to rate how likely a particular asteroid or comet will be to
D. astronomers have developed a scale for rating the likelihood that a particular asteroid or comet will

Agree with C.
The choice is among C, D and E.
"Scale to rate" in C is better idiom than "scale for rating" in D.
