Answer is B

Reason:
A. No. “Argued about if” is not idiomatic. The correct answer is B.
B. Yes. “Argued over whether” is idiomatic. The end of the sentence is written in the subjunctive mood, as it should be in hypothetical situations. The correct answer is B.
C. No. “Argued about” is not idiomatic. Since the second phrase is hypothetical, it should be in the subjunctive mood. The correct answer is B.
D. No. “If…or not” is not idiomatic. The correct answer is B.
E. No. “Argue about” is not idiomatic. Being is an unnecessary conjunction. “Or not” is redundant in the sentence, since the word whether already makes that clear. The correct answer is B.

E) about whether the right to die should be viewed as being only a matter of conscience or not.



OA B is wrong: "whether" has to include the "or" complement. As for the rest:
argue about = argue over.
A. ok
B. "whether" lacks "or"
C. "whether" lacks "or", "was" -> "were" (Hypothetical Subjunctive)
D. "if"+ "or"
E. as being is verbose.

Picked A, but open to dispute.

Both are correct respective of its use.
I guess "Argue about" is related to something abstract..like :
They argued about the meaning of life.
