OA is wrong. It should be C. The new administration is singular and cannot be represented with plural they.

"Whether" has to be used for Yes/No type of decisions.
The only dilemma I faced was that should'administration' be considered singular or plural because the non-underlined part doesn't provide any indication.
So is it C or D?
Ultimately selected C though.

Can someone shed some light on this issue?

One of the most important choices facing the new administration at this moment is if they should continue to advance contractionary fiscal policy.

A) this moment is if they should continue to advance contractionary fiscal policy --> "administration" is singular

B) this present moment is whether it should continue to advance contractionary fiscal policy -->"this present moment" is redundant: this <=> present

C) this moment is whether it should continue to advance contractionary fiscal policy --> correct

D) this moment is whether they should continue to advance contractionary fiscal policy --> same as A

E) this present moment is whether it should continue the advancement of contractionary fiscal policy --> same as B

Administration is a collective noun and should be singular.
