Roughly three times farther away than Pluto, the new planet is the most distant known object in the solar system, near-infrared spectra show signs of methane ice on the planet's surface, indicating that the planet has not been warmed significantly since the birth of the solar system some 4.5 billion years ago.

1st split I used is "Planet has not been warmed" vs "Planet had not been warmed". "Has not been warmed"is the right usage and hence Option D and E can be eliminated.

In the option A, "Near-Infrared spectra" (an independent clause) starts immediately after the comma which is wrong and hence a conjunction is needed there. Hence option A is eliminated.

Between B and C, it is "Which indicates" vs "indicating". Which points to planet's surface rather than the methane ice. Hence option B can be eliminated which leaves Option C as the answer.
