This question is tricky.

whether is needed so that the situation can be described in either a yes or a no (if condition is not required.)

Reason is singular a,b,c out

The question here compares being vs misplaced only modifier.

D gives a clear and coherent picture.

A.

We are applying a condition, hence we require if and not whether.

Between A and B: In B, 'only' incorrectly modifies due process, whereas in A, 'only' aptly modifies the condition.

Please correct me if my understanding is incorrect.

the placement of "only" in a and e is wrong, b c d correct that.
Between b c and d , c is wrong as the author only implied single reason so there are is wrong in c .
Between b and d , d has the verb missing after that "that this process is not being as rigorously executed as it should."

Dear Experts

Please can you provide your review of this statement and options and why D should be correct answer.

This is a tricky question with almost similar options.

And also, can we use " not being as rigorously as executed " or I though it' always better to have not executed as rigorously as it should.
