(A) Counting each of the nine planets and their many moons, there is
(B) Counting each of the nine planets and their many moons, there are
(C) Counting each of the nine planets and its many moons, there is
(D) Counting each of the nine planets and its many moons, there are
(E) Counting everyone of the nine planets and their many moons, there are

The OA is D.
