This has already been promptly corrected several posts ago. Ben made
an insightful remark about that.
We are now dealing with a random splitting which is a function of n.
(This has also an intuitive meaning, as if it did not depend on n, we
would not be "dividing" anything.)

First of all, i can't delete your posts, and everyone can see them.
Second you have a rather peculiar idea of what "clear" means.
