Unlike the other major planets, Pluto has a highly eccentric orbit, which is thus closer to the Sun than Neptune is for 20 years out of every 230-year cycle, even though it is commonly described as the remotest planet in the solar system.

A) Pluto has a highly eccentric orbit, which is thus closer to the Sun than Neptune is - which incorrectly refers to orbit
B) Pluto has a highly eccentric orbit and is thus closer to the Sun than Neptune is - Correct
C) Pluto's orbit is highly eccentric and is thus closer to the Sun than Neptune -- illogical comparison -- planets vs orbit
D) the orbit of Pluto is highly eccentric and thus closer to Sun than Neptune -- illogical comparison
E) the orbit of Pluto is highly eccentric, thus closer to the Sun than Neptune is -- illogical comparison

Answer B
