If is used in the case of conditionals and whether is used when we have two different outcomes

therefore since the sentence talks about different outcomes we must use whether

eliminate options B/D and E

(A) whether the evidence warrants censuring him or ousting him
is the correct option!
censuring him/ousting him both end with him and are parallel to each other!

(C) whether or not the evidence warrants the censuring or ousting of him

whether + or not is considered redundant on gmat
the censuring and ousting of him are not parallel to each other
