A "false" (equally superimposed qubit) is created by mechanically firing with 50/50 probability a resonance photon at a Hydrogen atom qubit in the ground state. This qubit is sent to Alice and it now has 50/50 probability of being in state |0> or state |1>, but it is not a quantum mechanical supoerimposed state! Alice is also sent a "real" 50/50 superimposed qubit created by a Rabi process.

QUESTION: Is there any way that Alice can perform gates and measurements on the two qubits to determine which is which?
