My thoughts

No is quantifying the level of happiness

Not is simply negating the feeling of happiness

Both of them are not interchangeable and we can take B,C,E out

Between A & D, Its A for me

What is the OA?

D has parallel issue

people living in X consider ... do people living in Y

A is parallel in structure.

Struggled between A & D.

A is the winner. Parallel to non-underlined part.

A is comparing the feeling of happiness of people to feeling of happiness of another set of people

D compares happiness of people to people themselves.

Spriya, "consider....do", not "consider...are", is parallel

Though icandy's answer explains it best, I follow following method (which i must mention, I haven't tested extensively)

"people in small towns (do) consider" than "do people in big city"
