Except A all can be ruled out easily.

(A) every honest farmer is poor - correct

(B) every honest person is a farmer - we are only talking about honesty within farmers. Thus, we cannot say about every person.

(C) everyone who is dishonest is a rich farmer - incorrect. Same reason as for B.

(D) everyone who is poor is honest - incorrect. Same reason as for B.

(E) every poor person is a farmer - incorrect. Same reason as for B.

IMO A.

Experts can you help in determining how other answers are wrong?

I got confused by the wording of the answers and ended up choosing C.
