Fun fact :If the set of possible answers is infinite , and person T (T stands for troll) claims to have one ,then person B cannot determine for sure using only yes or no questions . Each question is a function from the set of remaining answers to {Yes,No} . Provided that the set is infinite , either the inverse image to Yes or the inverse image of No is infinite . There exists a sequence of choices as answers of T such that the set of 'remaining valid answers' always remains infinite , thereby always giving the impression of knowledge of an answer , while ensuring for a fact that such an answer does not exist .
