    The answer doesn’t seem to make sense. Or should I say it’s the puzzle itself that makes no sense?

    The puzzle says “When the door opened, Jim is in a big room”. If Jim was IN the elevator, that doesn’t put him in a big room “when the door opened”. He can be in the “big room” if and only when he EXITS from the “small room”. But if that be the case, he could be in ANY “small room” – not necessarily an elevator. He enters a small room, door closes, then door opens, and he exits from the “small room” thereby entering a big room.
