To whom so ever it may concern; On this topic, I have a small note to add

Coordinate adjectives are adjectives that modify a single noun and are not joined by any conjunctions. For example, we say an amazing, mammoth profession. The adjectives ‘amazing and mammoth’ both refer to the procession and are not joined the usual ‘and’. A comma is used to separate both the adjectives, In effect it means an amazing and mammoth procession.

You can use coordinate adjectives only when the adjectives can individually modify the same noun as in the above case. More importantly even if you reverse the order of the adjectives, it should mean the same thing. Whether it is an amazing mammoth procession or a mammoth amazing procession, it means the same.

On the contrary try to reverse the order of the adjectives in the following cases.

I am longing for a hot, lemon tea; I am longing for a lemon, hot tea.

The previous, stout woman cooking in the kitchen is my wife; the stout, previous woman cooking in the kitchen is my wife

You can see the absurdity of reversing the order of the adjectives in the above cases. These are called cumulative adjectives.

Separate, required are coordinate adjectives modifying 'course'. They are legitimate

Only B and C is contenders here. C seems change the meaning compared with the non-underlined part here.

While some academicians believe that business ethics should be integrated into every business course, others say that students will take ethics seriously only if it would be taught as a separately required course.

(A) only if it would be taught as a separately required course
(B) only if it is taught as a separate, required course
(C) if it is taught only as a course required separately
(D) if it was taught only as a separate and required course
(E) if it would only be taught as a required course, separately


A and E can be eliminated because of incorrect usage of the conditional. "others say that students will take ethics seriously [FUTURE], use of would, was, were is wrong therefore A, D and E are out.

C is an awkward construction. If it is taught only as a course, only modifies course. course required separately is an awkward and therefore, wrong structure.

Left with B.

However my issue is that ethics need to be plural and hence "it" cannot be used to refer them. Mind you we are not referring to business ethics as a course yet. Let me know if anybody thinks otherwise.

If we accept "it" however the reply can be explained as follows:
c d e change the meaning by moving away only to later part of the sentence.

The word "Ethics" such as the word "Politics" is singular.

My answer is B, reasons are stated below

Use of conditional tense, WOULD WILL NEVER COME in the IF CLAUSE.
Hence we can safely take out A and E
Use of past tense in IF CLAUSE is only done in case of future speculation unlikely to happen, hence D goes out.

Left with B and C

I removed C for the awkwardness of COURSE REQUIRED SEPARATELY ( by whome ??)

Left with answer B.
