Must be (E) -

One question raised by scholarly hoaxes
    such as "Piltdown Man" or
    the "Praenestine Fibula,"
    both of which influenced much subsequent scholarship,
is whether to reject every archaeological discovery, no matter how useful, until its authenticity is unimpeachably verified.

Really getting in my SC practice, it is my weakest.

I went with E - through process of elimination,

C - the idiom of whether or not, from my understanding the "not" on the gmat is implied. So "dueces"
A & D - I believed, "if" is used for conditions as "whether" you have two options. In this prompt we are given two options, to reject or not.

So leaves B & E, I went with E, because the wording of "both of which" I take as saying, of which ( I have previously mentioned in my opening clause) as more concise.

So I went with E
