Whenever two alternatives are present, "whether" should be used.

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



The first thing you must do is to decide whether to use the word ‘whether’ or the word ‘if’. The word ‘if’ can be used if you have a single possibility. You can say, for example, “If you go to the store, I will come with you.” There is no second possibility mentioned in the sentence. There are two possibilities in the sentence you are considering here. Consequently, you know you have to use the word ‘whether’ here. That leaves choice A and C. Choice C is not efficient. Choice A is the correct answer.
