Dear teachers.

Which is correct position of "only" in this question?

A:( ).
B: I doubt it.

1. Only this will take a minute
2. This only will take a minute
3. This will only take a minute
4. This will take a minute only

I'm really confused. Your explanation would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.^^

Yes. I don’t think 1. & 2. are possible (acceptable) English.
