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 .
