Isn`t it that 'whether' is used when evaluating alternatives. f,e: They can not identify whether it is A or B that caused trauma.

And 'if' is used when hypothisizing. F,e: I wonder if you can do it.

Anyway, is there any other reason why E is not the answer. C is OA

My understanding is that if you have to pick between whether and if, whether is almost always right. However, whether is correct use here because it gives choices to tourists. When you use if, it is not giving the choices. For example,

She will go if I go.

In the example, you cannot add "or not" after "I go".

Also, I feel that "one" in E should be plural, not singular.

Ravshonbek, I probably have a hard time picking between those two. I probably go with the latter one...

Yes, I did not pay attention to the usage of 'one', that is one of the good reasons not to choose E.

Thank you.

easy C.

D,E are out because of 'if'

A,B are wrong. pronoun error 'their' : their -> tourists or rhinoceroses?
