E...as if one has serious financial problems, they can't be happy, so if they are happy they dont have serious financial problems.

can't be B or C as the original sentence says if they have financial problems, and they solve it, they can be happy, but not necessarily..."will be" sounds too definite..

Premise 1:
People with serious financial problem -----> People Not Happy

Premise 2:
People and those around them happy ------> Financial problems solved

E is same as premise 1

People Happy ------> People don't have serious financial problems.

I am not sure if this kind of reasoning appears in GMAT.


Agree, nicely explained. +1 from me.

Which one of the following statements can be properly inferred from the passage?
(A) Only serious problems make people unhappy.
(B) People who solve their serious financial problems will be happy.
(C) People who do not have serious financial problems will be happy.
(D) If people are unhappy, they have serious financial problems.
(E) If people are happy, they do not have serious financial problems.


So that I choose B

Similar to

If X then Y ==> If not Y, then not X.

X=serious financial problems
Y=not happy.

only if introduces a necessary condition.

I'll go only if you come with me. This implies that if I finally go you've come with me. I go ---> you come with me.

Let me know if that helped

Strange, to me it seems B is essentially a para phrase of the conclusion and thus a better choice than E.
