Girls who are both rich and beautiful easily marry but who are ugly and poor don't.This means that:
A.Rich girls marry easily
B.Beautiful girls marry easily
C.For a girl to marry easily she need to be beautiful
D.For a girl to marry she needs to be rich
E.Ugly girls do not marry easily

i have posted the question here because i know that in the critical reasoning forum i would be asked to provide an official answer..i truly dont what its official answer is so i would n't dare guess..would someone with a better idea what its answer might be please explain to me

I can't even begin to tell how far this question is from the GMAT world. It is at best ambiguous. GMAT would never use this kind of language and you will never find this kind ambiguity. I firmly believe that improvement in verbal only happens when you practice questions from good/trusted sources.

For fun:
rich and beautiful are inter-changable variables in this question. There should be no difference between 1 and 2. hence those are incorrect.

Actually, forget it. I can disprove C D & E with all the 3 different meanings of the question. (and through my personal experience as well)

I'll say move on to a better source.

Best
