(A) is correct. Whether is for comparison and "If" is always for a condition.

On the GMAT, whether will (almost) always beat if

Incorrect: Her client didn’t tell her if he had sent his payment yet.
Correct: Her client didn’t tell her whether he had sent his payment yet.

Whether 'or not' is redundant.
Just stick to whether.

A is best because whether X or Y is correct format. B does not look correct because it does not convey the intended meaning. Whether or not in C can be replaced by the format in A. In D, If should be conditional preceding some effect. Nothing like that can be related. In E, concerning coupled with noun would have been OK. Whether is between does not go along.
