Correct idiomatic( Parallelism) usage is :

Between X and Y

None but (D) maintains the same , hence answer will undoubtedly be (D)

Option D corrects the two main errors in our original sentence.
1. Usage of Idiomatic expression "Distinction BETWEEN X and Y"
2.Correcting the ambiguous Pronoun 'its mass' by changing it to the 'object's mass.'


Questions like these help you save a lot of time. Here only one option corrects the usage of the idiom. The early you notice it, the sooner you can cancel out other wrong choices.

PS -- Please leave me a KUDO if this explanation helped you in any way. It will be much appreciated. :-D
