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?
