No way would can appear in if clause as per MGMAT SC. Drop A & E

then clause has will + base verb, means if clause should have present tense. D is out

Between B & C, its B because C says course required separately and moves only to the middle leaving open to different interpretations

B is clear and rectifies the issue with the original sentence where separately is used as an adverb.

My pick B.

I think B should go as it correctly places only after seriously as it means that students will be seriosly only if......
but i was thinking a can also be correct as it is in the subjunctive case i alys get confused........

OA is B

X will happen if Y happens
if Y happens X will happen

Future tense in the "if" clause is incorrect ->A and E are OUT

if "only" is brought inside the "if" statement iy changes the meaning of the SC ->C and D are OUT

Can someone explain why "only" placed inside the IF clause in C changes the meaning?
