There is little point in looking to artists for insights into political issues. Most of them hold political views that are less insightful than those of any reasonably well-educated person who is not an artist. Indeed, when taken as a whole, the statements made by artists, including those considered great, indicate that artistic talent and political insight are rarely found together.
Which one of the following can be inferred from the passage?
(A) There are no artists who have insights into political issues.
(B) A thorough education in art makers a person reasonably well educated.
(C) Every reasonably well-educated person who is not an artist has more insight into political issues than any artist.
(D) Politicians rarely have any artistic talent.
(E) Some artists are no less politically insightful than some reasonably well-educated persons who are not artists.

Which one of the following can be inferred from the passage?
(A) There are no artists who have insights into political issues. -- too strong and falsifies the premise. POE.
(B) A thorough education in art makers a person reasonably well educated. -- Out of scope.
(C) Every reasonably well-educated person who is not an artist has more insight into political issues than any artist. -- too strong and not considered in the argument. POE.
(D) Politicians rarely have any artistic talent. -- Out of scope.
(E) Some artists are no less politically insightful than some reasonably well-educated persons who are not artists. Can be inferred from the premise marked. OA.
