Default Clarification Request On Problem 13

If a data set is not separable using RBF in the Z-space then the QP solver will hit the iteration limit and bomb. If the solver completes and returns an alpha vector that happens to provide zero in-sample error with the test data set then how does that indicate that the training data was not linearly separable? Is every occurrence of zero in-sample error during testing to be interpreted as a failure to separate the training data? I don't understand the operating procedure specified by the problem text.

Thanks for your attention.
