Genuine happiness consists not in pleasurable feelings but instead in one's sense of approval of one's character and projects.

Which one of the following is an assumption required by the argument?

(A) A morally virtuous life requires the rejection of material well-being.

(B) People who approve of their own character and projects tend to lead morally virtuous lives.

(C) Approval of one's own character and projects tends not to result in pleasurable feelings.

(D) Attaining happiness is the real goal of people who strive for material well-being.

(E) Material well-being does not increase one's sense of approval of one's character and projects.

Is the OA B?
In the question it says one's sense of approval of one's character and projects which is what is given in option B.
