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 to be 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 s 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.

E; last line of the argument says "rarely' means some does possess that talent.
C is against the argument as it says 'any artist' which is not true.

E. - the argument just mention most of the artists and use the word "rarely". That means some artists are as politically insightful as well-educated persons.

A) no artists - too strong
B) out of scope
C) Every - too strong
D) Polticians - out of scope

Should be E because it rives room for exceptions.

One more vote for (E).

"As a whole" means there are exceptions.

E for me as well.

A, B and D are completely out. Between C and E I choose E. C is too extreme. "Every reasonably well-educated person who s not an artist has more insight into political issues than any artist.". E, though it is a bit confusing, it is IMO the correct answer.
