It is said that people should accept themselves as they are instead of being dissatisfied with their own abilities. But this is clearly a bad principle if the goal is a society whose citizens are genuinely happy, for no one can be genuinely happy if he or she is not pursuing personal excellence and is unwilling to undergo a personal change of any kind.

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

(A) Those who are willing to change will probably find genuine happiness.
(B) People who are not dissatisfied with themselves are less likely than others to pursue personal excellence.
(C) Personal excellence cannot be acquired by those who lack genuine confidence in their own abilities.
(D) People are justified in feeling content with themselves when they have achieved some degree of personal excellence.
(E) Happiness is not genuine unless it is based on something that is painful to obtain.

Answer should be B.

The logical gap I see is:
People shall be not be content with them and should challenge their own abilities ( this is what author believes)

And genuine happy society is some group in which people can enter when they strive for personal excellence.

Now challenging own abilities and personal excellence.. this is a logical gap. To address this we need something which says that challenging own abilities might lead to personal experience.

I believe B does that.
