My take on A.

B--->"not any" is improper usage
C---->Same as B
D---->Changes the meaning .This sentence states that people living in big cities are already happy
E----Same as D

Eliminate C & E b/c of incorrect parallelism (should be living, not lived)

Eliminate D b/c the idiom is off ("are people?")

We are left w/ A & B...both are fairly similar however A is shorter and more concise.

A, but what's wrong with E. First go...I say A.but in E the correct idiom diverts me again!

(A) no happier than do people living
(B) not any happier than do people living
(C) not any happier than do people who live
(D) no happier than are people who are living
(E) not as happy as are people who live

B & C - Eliminate - "not any" are redundant words.

Left with A,D & E

D - Eliminate - Redundant use of "are"

E - people living in small towns ......people who live. Missing ||ism

A - ||ism
