I think answer is D as it correctly states that wife is content not her unhappiness.

D as well, you should compare her feelings to feelings, or a person to a person and only D does it.

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



The sentence should have a contrast within it. Even though the housewife seems content, she is unhappy. E does not have this element of contrast. Choices A and B present the pronoun ‘she’ without any clear reference. It is better to have the pronoun after the noun to which it is related, not before. Choice C has a dangling modifier. The person who is content must be mentioned directly after the comma. Choice D is therefore the correct answer.
