    No, I mean questions that you could, theoretically answer, that you know the answer to, but you are in a state or condition that you can't. (Gave it away)

    'Are you asleep' can never be truthfully answered 'yes.'
    'Are you awake' can never be truthfully answered 'no.'

    'Are you alive' can never be truthfully answered 'no.'
    'Are you dead' can never be truthfully answered 'yes.'

    'Are you choking' can never be truthfully answered 'yes.'

    Is this the sort of thing you mean? There are a host of ones you
    could create with conditions that limit your ability to answer a
    specific question.

    1. Are you dead? Can't be answered if you are.
    2. Are you asleep? Can't be answered if you are.

    You could sleep talk. Some people are very aware of their surroundings even in their sleep, and incorperate them into their dreams. So if you ask someone if they're sleeping, they may believe it's someone in their dream, and then answer out loud.
