People with serious financial problems are so worried about money that they cannot be happy. Their misery makes everyone close to them—family, friends, colleagues—unhappy as well. Only if their financial problems are solved can they and those around them be happy.
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.

I am not getting convinced with any of the answer choices. The contenders are "B" and "E". One way or the other both of them indicate that if people do not have serious financial problem they will be happy. However, as per the premise misery of a person makes family, friends and colleagues unhappy as well. The point is even if someone has solved his/her serious financial problem or do not have it at all, he/she still could be unhappy if his/her family, friends and colleagues are not happy because of some misery on their part.

The concept of sufficient and necessary condition is very well explained by VeritasPrepKarishma

Statement: If A, then B (A is sufficient for B to happen)

ð A implies B

ð B does NOT imply A

ð ‘Not A’ does NOT imply ‘Not B’

ð ‘Not B’ implies ‘Not A’

Statement: Only if A, then B (A is necessary for B to happen)

ð A does NOT imply B

ð B implies A

ð ‘Not A’ implies ‘Not B’

ð ‘Not B’ does NOT imply ‘Not A’

Choice E (correct answer) falls into Only if A, then B => B implies A

I think this argument is not propertly framed.
Here we have assume that all Financial Problems are Serious Financial Problems then only we can solve this
