It is E. So massive is correct and from D and E "its" is good.

It's E. Subject verb agreement. The black hole is singular hence the possesive pronoun "its"

E for me as well.

Couldn't remember if this is an idiom or not. But definetely choose between D and E. and D is not right with "their"

So E.

(E) 'so....that' is an idiom that is tested over and over again...
(C) & (D) 'Their' is absolutely wrong
(B) changes the meaning with "either... or"
(A) sounded good when first reading, but 'too' does not make sense...
