I was really surprised when i tried to solve this question >


37. 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.
113
(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

I mean woudlnt separately be parallel with seriusly and in this way we kick out b and D ?

pleas can someone explain this to me

The catch for this question is

y will happen if x happens ----> If clause should be in present tense and then clause can be in future.

Hence B.

One more thing - gmat is playing with the modifier "only". It should be placed precisely before the "if" clause.

If X then Y
a variation of above---> ONLY if (X) then Y or Y will happen ONLY if X happens.

Yup, agree with B - it uses the right idiom. "separate" should not be made parallel to "seriously". Changing 'separate' to other forms would change the entire meaning of the sentence.

No, you would not eliminate B and D, because they should not necessarily be parallel.
First, solve the tense issue. students will take ethics seriously... so this says they will do something in the future. If something happens. But the tense used here is : would be taught ( future+past?) does not seem correct. It should be, if is taught, because the students taking ethics seriously will only happen in the future, so its obvious that the teaching will also happen in the future.
There fore, you say only if it is taught as a separate, required course
