All savings accounts are interest-bearing accounts. The interest from some interest-bearing accounts is tax-free, so there must be some savings accounts that have tax-free interest.

Which one of the following arguments is flawed in a way most similar to the way in which the passage is flawed?

(A) All artists are intellectuals. Some great photographers are artists. Therefore, some great photographers must be intellectuals.
(B) All great photographers are artists. All artists are intellectuals. Therefore, some great photographers must be intellectuals.
(C) All great photographers are artists. Some artists are intellectuals. Therefore, some great photographers are intellectuals.
(D) All great photographers are artists. Some great photographers are intellectuals. Therefore, some artists must be intellectuals.
(E) All great photographers are artists. No artists are intellectuals. Therefore, some great photographers must not be intellectuals.

Yes it is C.
The logic used in both A & C is
All X -> Y
Some Y -> Z
=> Some X -> Z

C it is.

All savings accounts are interest-bearing accounts. The interest from some interest-bearing accounts is tax-free, so there must be some savings accounts that have tax-free interest.

The flaw is interest-bearing accounts are not necessarily savings accounts.
Therefore, although some interest-bearing accounts are tax-free, maybe all of the savings accounts are not tax-free interest.

(C) All great photographers are artists. Some artists are intellectuals. Therefore, some great photographers are intellectuals.

the same, artists are not necessarily photographers. Therefore, although some artists are intellectuals, maybe all of the photographers are not intellectuals.

"C".....As nicely illustrated by Christoph, visualizing set diagrams helps with these questions.

OA is C.

But, christoph, i think your diagram has to be revised. because it says
"all great photographers are artists.
All (instead of some) artists are intellectuals.
Therefore, all (not some) great photographers are intellectuals".
