If I had a test question?

If I had a test question and it was to correctly name this interval - C to F Flat - Would either of these answers be correct? This is just for future reference.

- C to F Flat is a diminished Fourth
- C to F Flat is a Major 3rd

Sense it names C to F flat which is a fourth would I have to say its a diminished Fourth? Or could I say its a Major third because a major third is consisted of C, D, E, and just having that flat C - F flat would make it fall on a E.

C to F flat is a diminished fourth. Always use letter names to determine intervals, not enharmonic spellings.
