A is just fine.

A) about whether obesity is a biological disorder posing serious health risks or a condition more related to appearance than to
(B) with respect to obesity being a biological disorder posing serious
health risks or if it is related more to appearance than
- OUT being , use of if , discard this

(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
- OUT whether or not

(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
- OUT misplaced more (adverb) should modify "related" rather than appearance. and also missing preposition asfter 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.
