Option A I deduce.

A. Properly placed modifier, Verb agreement & Whether / or syntax
B. Incorrectly placed "if" - should be in cause/effect framework
C. "the subject of lively debate" - Wrong placed
D. "the subject of lively and emotional debate" - Awkward
E. Not concise

Hope it helped.

Cheers
Qoofi
