+1 for B

A)The absence of an atmosphere and the presence of water is an interesting characteristic of the moon. should be 'are' because "The absence of... and the presence of...." makes it a compound noun
B)The absence of an atmosphere and the presence of water are interesting characteristics of the moon. Correct!
C)The absence of an atmosphere as well as the presence of water are interesting characteristic of the moon. Here, the subject is only 'the absence of...' because of 'as well as'. So, verb should have been 'is'
D)An interesting characteristic of the moon is the absence of atmosphere and presence of the water. Same as A
E)The absence of an atmosphere and the presence of water are an interesting characteristic of the moon. ...should be 'are interesting characteristics'

I see no wrong in D. There is no THE before water. Hence A and D are technically the same, but D sound well. Experts opinions.
