Why is it not "Jesteś smutnym?" I thougth that you need the instrumental after using the verb to be.
Noun phrases need it, but a standalone adjective just takes Nominative.
Compare "Jesteś smutnym człowiekiem?" and "Jesteś smutny?".

The choices were jestescie, smutne, and smutny. No Jestes, no smutna.
There are four equally correct answers here. You could have created "Jesteście smutne?" (plural, spoken to two or more women).

No, all interpretations of "you" are correct and "Jesteś smutna?" definitely should have worked.
