Here we go

Statement 1: Persian cats are among the most beautiful cats
Statement 2: ALL persian cats are pompous
Statement 3: ALL pompous cats are irritating

conclusion driven: All persian cats are irritating. SOME beautiful cats are pompous. SOME beautiful cats are irritating

Let's check the answers:

A)
Ok, we can infer that because of statement 1 and the conclusion

B)
We can infer that too (look at my conclusion)

C)
As all persian cats are irritating... if a cat is not irritating, it's not a persian cat

D)
That's true too

E)
We cannot infer that there is any cat in the world that is irritating and beautiful, except for the Persian cat.

I agree, the answer should be E as we can't infer that from the passage.
