B,E are wrong; as both have 'they' ,which is ambiguous
C contains unnecessary 'being'

So A is best

This question can be solved within 5 seconds if you know the right idiom,that is consider X,Y.So D is the right answer.

But how do you solve this question if you don't know the right idiom?

Unless you are using a hypothetical subjunctive,"whether" always outranks "if". So A and B are out.

Now among C,D and E

C. as being a legitimate target market and question whether-the use being is wrong here. Be always suspicious about the use of being but that doesn't mean being is always wrong.
D. a legitimate target market and question whether-looks good hold
E. were a legitimate target market, and they questioned whether -the use of were is wrong and they is ambiguous.

So D is the right answer.
