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.

Feel the same.
(B) can't be the right answer?

B cannot be the right answer , here is the explanation

conclusion :Only if their financial problems are solved can they and those around them be happy

B states : People who solve their serious financial problems will be happy.

there is clear difference between can and will, and a trap is present here , need to look closely.There can be several reasons for not being happy , besides financial problems.

E states : If people are happy, they do not have serious financial problems.

this is logical , as the premise is : People with serious financial problems are so worried about money that they cannot be happy .

so to be happy 1 necessary (but not sufficient) condition is to not have serious financial problems.
