If you look at the test answer, you'll see that 'fed up' means 'very tired' (of something). It also has the sense of 'bored' or 'disgusted'.

Is there any sentence in which we can use 'fed up' as a mean 'unhappy with' ?

Sometimes we are 'fed up' because we are unhappy with something, but we are also 'fed up' when we are angry, frustrated, or just exhausted. The idiom means 'very tired of'.

yes, fed up always means unhappy with. Example I am fed up with you. She is fed up with her boss.
