Between B and C.
I go for B because people without financial problems are not discussed at all so anything said about them will be an assumption.

I would go with E.

Premise 1:
People with serious financial problem -----> People Not Happy

Premise 2:
People and those around them happy ------> Financial problems solved

E is same as premise 1

People Happy ------> People don't have serious financial problems.

I am not sure if this kind of reasoning appears in GMAT.

E...as if one has serious financial problems, they can't be happy, so if they are happy they dont have serious financial problems.

can't be B or C as the original sentence says if they have financial problems, and they solve it, they can be happy, but not necessarily..."will be" sounds too definite..

(E) If people are happy, they do not have serious financial problems.

e is the best here
let me try to explain situation with B,
if you go through the part in bold you can see never in the argument it has been mentioned " X is happy if he solves his problem"
its only mentioned that their problems are solved not that they solve their problem I prefer to say its shell game types answer.
