I say E. Happiness to one person is not the same for another person.

Different people have different objective, hence Happiness means different to everyone. So E.

Explanation:

The speaker gives a definite view about happiness. He does not use terms to suggest that happiness could mean this for some. He does not consider that people differ from each other in their viewpoints. He makes a general statement which is not applicable for everyone. Also it is not necessary that each person has an objective to realize, however important or unimportant. Thus we can say that E is the best answer option.

The explanation given by SajjadAhmad seems sufficient. Thanks to Sajjad-bhai for his efforts in posting new questions to make our GMATclub community richer. Please keep up the good work. Yet I would like to add the following:

Please note that you are not expected to get a single statement as your stimulus in a real GMAT test. This particular question does not seem to be GMAT-like.

Coming to your query, option C is not relevant because success is out of scope of the argument. "Realization of worthy matter" and "success" are not the same.
