The intended meaning of the sentence is the finding of the study that compares the radiation level of two events i.e. storms caused by M-dwarf stars and thermonuclear explosion and A fits better in this...........C is wrong because you cannot find the radiation level it is result of the analysis.

Hope this helps......

D violates the basic English grammar rules. In other words, D is a run-on sentence.
