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 is wrongly modifying 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 -1. incorrect comparison between planets and orbit 2.meaning change
D) the orbit of Pluto is highly eccentric and thus closer to Sun than Neptune -1. incorrect comparison between planets and orbit 2.meaning change
E) the orbit of Pluto is highly eccentric, thus closer to the Sun than Neptune is -1. incorrect comparison between planets and orbit 2.meaning change 3.

B is the correct option,
C D E are straight out since they compare 'other major planets' with Pluto's orbit.
From A & B,
A sounds like orbit is closer to the sun than neptune is.
Only B correctly compares Pluto to other planets & to Neptune
