I will go with A.

In A "their" refers to rhinoceroses.

think that C) is best here. A perfect tense is needed to properly describe the order of events

I will go with C

A - The sentence refers to 'The question' so the question should be 'whether tourists will continue to visit game parks to see rhinoceroses'.

another vote for C.

* 'whether' is almost always preferable for GMAT.
* we need 'have been' for the right tense.

Yup C is the best answer. The tense should be consistent and I missed it from reading the first part of the sentence.

To anyone who can explain,

My understanding was, if should be used when the condition taht follows is hypothetical (like in this case) and whether should be used when there is a choice (whether it will rain or not).

I am not sure why we use whether here.

Thanks,
Ranga

Your understanding of the usage is correct but I am not sure where you find the condition in this sentence.
