24. 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.

I hesitated a bit on C but it cannot be the answer because from stimuli:
Most of them [artists] hold political views that are less insightful than those of any reasonably well-educated person who is not an artist.

Therefore, we cannot conclude that:
Every reasonably well-educated person who s not an artist has more insight into political issues than any artist.

I thought the problem with C is "any artist" at the end.
Was it a LSAT question ?

Right, any artist is what is wrong and should have been bolded. But every person who's not an artist is also wrong because it because it means that all of them are better than artists

C or E

for me, E would make sense:

E) Some artists are no less politically insightful than some reasonably well-educated persons who are not artists.

This sentence: 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. -> rarely means there is a realistic possibility. that means there ARE some artists no less ...
