I am not a native English speaker and would like to ask you a question. I wonder whether the sentence B, C are also okay in addition to the sentence A.

Sentence A.

"Can I move to a rural area and grow crops if I am able to make good money by farming?"

Sentence B.

"Can I move to a rural area and grow crops if I was able to make good money by farming?"

Sentence C.

"Could I move to a rural area and grow crops if I was able to make good money by farming?"

A is fine.

C is almost OK but "I was" needs to be "I were" (subjunctive)

B is wrong because the tense of "Can I move" doesn't agree with the tense of "I was able" (and, as per C, "I was" needs to be "I were")
