E. While the paragraph does say that there are other beautiful cats, it doesn't say that other cats are pompous and thus irritating.

I will say E
the shortcut is that the stem deals exclusively with persian cats ( using restrictive terms such as all and invariably) .
So E is out of scope since no relvant information can be obtained about cat that are not persian.
