I would go with A. But I feel like I'm missing an idiom ...

i will go for E.
Something tells me (not very sure what.. ) that we need to have a If cluase in this case. The sentence is more like: X would be true only if Y is true.
whats the correct choice and will anyone please caliry the usage of "would"... this word troubles me a lot..

Wouldn't the correct choice be (C) , not sure about the reason though.

Yup!

I know this question. It was quite shocking.

Correct answer is E, although "if only because" sounds weird for me.

BTW There is also one question in OG that uses the same "if only because".

I think that "If only because" means "Only for the reason"

Is it correct to use "if only because" construct.

what error is being tested here? Can some one explain where to use 'if only because'...is it a kind of idiomatic expression....

I can say its either B or E but they both are strange and cant come up with a clear winner here.
