Explanatory Answer

Method of solving this CAT Question from Sentence Correction:

There are no errors in the given sentence.

The syntax of the sentence is declarative. It does not pose a direct question. So, it is not appropriate to use a question mark at the end of this sentence.

In the phrase, 'whether or not', 'or not' is often optional. Only when the expression 'whether or not' is used in the sense of 'regardless of whether', the use of 'or not' is compulsory. In the given sentence, 'or not' is optional — the sentence still makes sense without it.

The question is " Choose the grammatically correct option "

Hence, the answer is option D

Choice D is the correct answer.
