    Default It is no longer a question whether/ that

    It is no longer a question ______ man can land on the moon.
    A. that B. whether

    I think both answers are fine and 'whether' is better. Am I right?

    Thank you very much.

    IMO, whether is the only good answer. I may be wrong, but I see that there are choices in the sentence that's why.

    It's like saying : It is no longer a question whether man can land on the moon or not.
