Default Problem 1.10 (b)

Hello,

I believe that the number of possible f that can generate D in a noiseless setting is infinite. For example, if I take a data set of 2 points, say (5,-1) and (3,1), I can come up with any number of functions that will generate these two points.

However, I'm confused as to how this reconciles with the example on p. 16 where the set of all possible target functions in the example is finite, namely 256. Is this because the input space X is limited to Boolean vectors in 3 dimensions?

Thanks
