One player chooses a target object from a known set of n objects. The probability that he chooses object i is pi . These probabilities are known to the second player, who is to identify the target object by formulating a series of questions of the form, Is the target contained in subset S of the objects?, 4 for some specied S. Assuming the rst player answers these yes or no questions truthfully, how can the second player minimize the mean number of questions he must ask?
