Mental Health Diagnosis and assessment

Hello I am not sure about my answers. Can someone help me?

Jose is a Latino client who presents with occupational difficulties. He was laid off from a construction job 8 months ago and has been unable to find work. Ever since he lost his job, he has been drinking alcohol heavily throughout the day. He also reports “occasional” marijuana use. Jose recently was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol and has to appear in court next month. His wife is angry with him because she depends on him to pick up their 3 children from school, and now he may lose his driver’s license. Jose has always been a hard worker, but he admits that there were times that he often drank alcohol while working on construction jobs to eliminate his stress. He reports having intermittent episodes of anxiety since adolescence.
Based on the information provided, Jose’s principal diagnosis would likely be:
A. Alcohol use disorder
B. Cannabis use disorder
C. Adjustment disorder with mixed anxiety and depressed mood
D. Major depressive anxiety disorder
At first I had selected (A) because alcohol was being used heavily that lead to him getting arrested and also mentioned that he often drank alcohol while working on construction jobs to eliminate his stress; however, he was laid off and began drinking heavily so I want to select (C).
