You are right that in learning we try to match the training points. The message of this problem is that regardless of whether you are doing something intelligent or otherwise, there is noting that can be learned outside the training sample in a deterministic sense. To make the message crisp, the problem considers some 'crazy' training schemes in the mix.
Where everyone thinks alike, no one thinks very much
