    You sound like my very young sister.

    "You're not the boss of me!"

    Ture, but at the same time irrelevant.

    Wait a second - I don't beleive that! This could not be a true answer...?

    When can a question be wrong? It's not even an assertion?
    The answer of the question is of cource "No, I didn't know." or "I don't really believe it is 80%..." Or any other answer.

    Like if I ask someone "Do you know what time it is?" and he answers "That's not true." Or "I think I find an error in your question!" Silly...

    A question cannot ever be either right nor wrong because you don't assert anything, you're just asking.

    We're talking about ChessKid1, FF. You are giving him far too much credit. ? ! . Are all the same to him, and there is no such thing as context. This is typical of his types of puzzles, inane and insane.
