I would go for A on the grounds of conciseness and parallellism

A is right ... either they "consider themselves no happier" or they "do not consider themselves happier" <-- this just sounds right to the ear. I am not sure if there is a rule around it. This eliminates BCE. Between A and D is incorrect as considering themselves happy is incorrectly compared to being happy.

I agree with answer A. "no happier" sounds right and "people living in small towns" is compared to "people living in big cities".

People living in small towns should be parallel to people living in big cities. So eliminate C,D and E.
Between A & B is there a rule as to why A would be right ?
