I can't even begin to tell how far this question is from the GMAT world. It is at best ambiguous. GMAT would never use this kind of language and you will never find this kind ambiguity. I firmly believe that improvement in verbal only happens when you practice questions from good/trusted sources.

For fun:
rich and beautiful are inter-changable variables in this question. There should be no difference between 1 and 2. hence those are incorrect.

Actually, forget it. I can disprove C D & E with all the 3 different meanings of the question. (and through my personal experience as well)

I'll say move on to a better source.

Best
