 To me, it sounds like he is trying to articulate this trick question I've heard here and there in the past. The question comes in various forms but basically is, 20 birds are in a tree. A hunter shoots one, how many are left? The answer is that only one is left, the dead one. The others have flown off at the sound of the gun shot.

When a bird in the tree, how do you determine that it is dead or alive?
 that means:How do change twice judge or even several times to judge into the first judgment
 Blog Entries: 27 Recognitions: Gold Member Homework Help Science Advisor When a bird is in the tree, how do you determine whether it is dead or alive?That depends on what the word "shot" means in the original question.
 You didn't say what the hunter shot. "The hunter shot one." One what? One giraffe? There are two birds in the tree as per your definition.
 you can say,there are 0,1,2 birds in the tree but when there is one bird in the tree ,you can not sure it is dead or alive. you get three answers of this question, but we get four answers,that means You have been misled by the figures
 and we can sure but how?
 made it to die
 when there are many birds in the tree,how can you judge? we judge only once
 This question is a problem of different points
 lol, they both die... eventually

 Can anyone tell me, how can I do? Because i am from china,and my english is poor. Do knowledge borders?
 when there is one bird in the tree,how can you judge it is dead or alive? You have a 50% probability of guessing right If you're lucky,you will be right.Otherwise, you're wrong.
 Is this science?
