"or not" used at the end of sentence in option E is redundant.
Also, the word 'if'should be used in Conditionals only. Since in this question there is no condition, if should be replaced by whether.
Hence, OA is C

Easy C. As mentioned above if should only be used for Condition. Also this choice maintains the parallelism.

Only A,C and E qualify for the review round.. jeje

Option A says 'to decide if the suspect is guilty.'
Option C says 'to decide whether the suspect is guilty.' best answer,precise and idiomatically sound,better than 'if '
Option E says ' to decide whether the suspect is guilty or not.'means same as C but lenghty and complex.

split 1 - "the easier it is" vs other - B / D are out.
A - If is used for conditions (if x happens than y happens). Whether is for choice. So A is out
E - we don't need "or not" here. whether is sufficient.

D is the correct choice.

A) the easier it is for that judge to decide if the suspect is guilty
B) it is easier for that judge to decide whether the suspect is guilty
C) the easier it is for that judge to decide whether the suspect is guilty
D) easier it is for that judge to decide whether the suspect is guilty
E) the easier it is for that judge to decide whether the suspect is guilty or not

The more..........the easier (Correct style and usage)

Correct Answer must be (C) for the highlighted errors in other options.

A) the easier it is for that judge to decide if the suspect is guilty- if is used for conditional clauses hence the usage is wrong. Use of whether is used to compare things
B) it is easier for that judge to decide whether the suspect is guilty- the more... the easier... is the correct sentence construction
C) the easier it is for that judge to decide whether the suspect is guilty- Bingo!
D) easier it is for that judge to decide whether the suspect is guilty- the more... the easier... is the correct sentence construction
E) the easier it is for that judge to decide whether the suspect is guilty or not- This is the runner up! but here a subtle difference makes it an incorrect choice. use of "whether" itself involves the "or not" and hence the usage of whether... or not makes the sentence redundant
