Your variables are: Name, Age, Gender, Height, Weight, Eye color, Hair color and Marital status, and you are asked which of these you cannot deduce by observation.

Can you deduce a person's weight by observation alone? Can you deduce a person's age?

Perhaps it depends on your powers of observation. Good luck with your midterm.
