A proposal has been made to trim the horns from rhinoceroses to discourage poachers; the question is whether tourists will continue to visit game parks and see rhinoceroses after their horns are trimmed.

(A) whether tourists will continue to visit game parks and see rhinoceroses after their horns are
"And see" loses the intention of why visitors come to visit. The contention is whether the act of trimming and de-horning rhinos will deter visitors from their intention to see rhinoceroses specifically, so "and see" simply loses this intention.

(B) whether tourists will continue to visit game parks to see one once their horns are
The use of "one" here is quite ambiguous as it could either refer to rhinoceroses or their horns in the same manner. When a more specific option is available, it doesn't make sense to opt for the sentence containing "one".

(C) whether tourists will continue to visit game parks to see rhinoceroses once the animals’ horns have been

Through the use of "if" loses the question and almost makes the question conditional without actually stating it. Perhaps it would be correct to say "the question, if the the tourists continue to visit, is" whether the de-horned rhinos will still appeal to the tourists.
(D) if tourists will continue to visit game parks and see rhinoceroses once the animals’ horns are
(E) if tourists will continue to visit game parks to see one after the animals’ horns have been

Answer C
Clause error - and is used for 2 different subjectes,in this case 2 subjects are related so and use is wrong
Vern tense error - have been use is better as plan an to presentd execution will start from past

Meaning - "visit game parks" should not be parallel to "see rhinos" because they are going to the game parks specifically TO see the animals

(B) whether tourists will continue to visit game parks to see one once their horns are
(E) if tourists will continue to visit game parks to see one after the animals’ horns have been
Pronoun - "one" doesn't have an antecedent (one what? presumably rhino, but it's plural in the sentence)

(C) whether tourists will continue to visit game parks to see rhinoceroses once the animals’ horns have been
