I will go with D

Counting each of the nine planets and its many moons, there are

each is singular so needs " Its"... "of the nine planets" is prepositional phrase.

Correct Answer: D

Rule: each takes a singular verb, so options B,D and E are out.
Option A uses "their" possessive noun, which is incorrect reference.
So answer choice D is correct.

Each requires " its "
After the comma the subject and verb has been reversed. Consider this :" 162 known and celestial bodies ARE there in our solar system"
Hence we need " its " and " ARE ".
Only D satisfies this.

E is awkward although there is no pronoun or verb error.

Hope the explanations help to some extent.
