The LM358 zener sets a standing voltage on the 2 comparitors. The other inputs to the comparitors are both positive and negative causing the outputs to switch in oposing directions . The transistor and led reflects the state of the outputs of the comparitors providing an on and off bias for the base of the transistor.
It will give you a small window off voltage when the comparitors provide bias to turn the transistor on and off
