1. X is part of Y: correct
X is a part of Y: wrong
A and B wrong, furthermore, "that" in A and "which" in B modify "satellites", but do not agree with "is"

2. "15 years effort of/for" should be 15-year effort to"

E win !

Answer must be E.D is wrong because it makes the meaning of the sentence illogical by stating that it is the 15 years that has subjected the interaction of the earths atmosphere.
