comment Riddle: 1 question to know if the number is 1, 2 or 3
Yes, but where does this polynomial come from? If the boy knows what the polynomial is, then he already knows the girl's number by virtue of the derivative being X at that point. If the girl knows what it is, then the "I don't know" response is inappropriate. If neither of them know what it is, then the polynomial is hypothetical and the correct response is "I would not have enough information" (eg. "I wouldn't know"), rather than "I don't currently have enough information".

This argument has gone on far too long and is probably just a semantic issue. Please rephrase your query about the second derivative in predicate logic. If the answer for 2 is still "I don't know" (and it appears to be the same query), then I'll believe you.
