(E), although my initial thought was (B)

(B) sounds right because it's somewhat stated in the conclusion of the argument. But the word "will" is too extreme because the argument uses the word "can".

(E) sounds right because of the inference rule that A->B, then !B->!A.
So serious financial problems -> not happy, then
happy -> no serious financial problems

I said E.

Inferred --> Means we should hit the premises.....Premise..People with serious financial problems are so worried about money that they cannot be happy.

I think it's E.

(B) People who solve their serious financial problems will be happy.

B may not be right because their family and friends might have serious financial problems that cause them to be unhappy as well.

Between B and C.
I go for B because people without financial problems are not discussed at all so anything said about them will be an assumption.

I would go with E.

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.
