(B) with respect to obesity being a biological disorder posing serious
health risks or if it is related more to appearance than

(D) about obesity and if it is a biological disorder posing serious health risks or a condition related to appearance more than to
- OUT using if

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

Isn't "about whether obesity..." awkwardly constructed. Are you choosing A, because all other choices are worse?

A is best. we should read the whole sentence. if we do so, then it is "a gr8 deal of confusion about whether.......................", which is best expression over rest others.

little tempting is C but if read the whole, it doesnot sound good because whether or not is not correct expression.

Thanks a million guys. I did not realize that whether or not is redundant and wrong.

The OA is A indeed.
