A few people who are bad writers simply cannot improve their writing, whether or not they receive instruction. still, most bad writers can at least be taught to improve their writing enough so that they are no longer bad writers. However, no one can become a great writer simply by being taught how to be a better writer, since great writers must have not just skill, but also talent.
Which one of the following can be properly infered from the passage above?
A). All bad writers can become better writers.

Can someone please shed some light on this question as to how you approach this question. Do you use Logic Diagrams in such questions?
You don't need any venn diagrams for this question. Just pick the required info:
1. Some bad writer CANNOT get better.
2. Most bad writers can be taught enough to be not bad anymore.
3. No one can become great by simply being taught how to be better since you need talent to be great.
Option (C) is straight forward - some bad writers can never become great (in fact some cannot even get better, forget about great).
Look at the other options:
A). All bad writers can become better writers - Incorrect according to the argument
B). All great writers had to be taught to become better writers - Incorrect according to the argument
D). Some bad writers can become great writers - Perhaps not! May be, if they have hidden talent but we certainly cannot infer this statement from the argument. The argument only tells us what cannot make one a great writer. It doesn't tell us what will make someone great.
E). Some great writers can be taught to be even better writers. - The argument doesn't talk about making great even better.
