Attic vetilation and access

Given: A two-story dwelling with a portion of the dwelling being one story or a one story addition to a two-story dwelling; does the code require ventilation of the one-story attic space? Does the code require access to the attic space?

This is a qualified yes since there are exceptions to access of small attics and attics with limited headroom in section 807.

"ATTIC. The unfinished space between the ceiling joists of the [color=#FF0040][b]top story [/b][/color]and the roof rafters."

I think it is a trick question.
