Financial success does not guarantee happiness. This claim is not mere proverbial wisdom but a fact verified by statistics. In a recently concluded survey, only one-third of the respondents who claimed to have achieved financial success reported that they were happy.
Which one of the following, if true, most strongly supports the conclusion drawn from the survey results?
(A) The respondents who reported financial success were, for the most part, financially successful
(B) Financial success was once thought to be necessary for happiness but is no longer considered a prerequisite for happiness
(C) Many of the respondents who claimed not to have achieved financial success reported that they were happy five years ago
(D) Many of the respondents who failed to report financial success were in fact financially successful
(E) Most of the respondents who reported they were unhappy were in fact happy.
Since 1/3rd were happy then 2/3rd were unhappy. Majority of the successful people were unhappy. In order for this to be strengthened it is essential to show that they are successfull in the first place. If not then their unhappiness may be because of some other reason. In a way it also serves as an assumption.
