(A) about whether obesity is a biological disorder posing serious health risks or a condition more related to appearance than to
- Pick A.

(B) with respect to obesity being a biological disorder posing serious health risks or if it is related more to appearance than
- 'with repect to' doesn't sound right to me.

(C) over whether or not obesity is a biological disorder posing serious health risks or it is a condition more related to appearance than to
- 'whether or not' is plain clumsy

(D) about obesity and if it is a biological disorder posing serious health risks or a condition related to appearance more than to
- lengthy construction with the use of 'if it is a'

(E) concerning whether obesity is a biological disorder posing serious health risks or it is a condition related to appearance more than to
- 'concerning' is inappropriately used here

I'll pick A. Sorry, my reasons sound sketchy here, but I just don't know how put in words what I felt was wrong with B to E

A)

B) is out because passive is used
E) is out because wrong word order => "more"

(A) is right because the correct idiom is confusion about and the use of whether is clearn and concise here.

(E) is close but i am not sure about the idiom "confusion concerning"

"A", all other choices r bad

B...use of being
C....confusion over whether or not....awkward
D....confusion is not abt obesity, confusion is abt properties of obesity
E....confusion....concerning....way too confusing

Hello, I think 'it is' is not necessary.

'whther obesity is a biological disorder .... or a condition .....' is clear enough.

Besides, the biggest problem is 'more than.' we should use 'more related than...'

go with A.

As Chunjuwu mentioned "it is" is redundant.....

So A stands out....
