Still unclear on Problem 6
For some reason I am still confused about what question 6 demands. I have read Prof Yaser's reply to the earlier post regarding this question, but I still dont get it.
a). As I understand, a possible target function is the one that agrees with all the 5 points that are stated in the problem. b). However, the questions says that the possible target functions are 8 ( all permulations of the remaining 3 points with their possible outputs ). I am unable to relate the above two definitions of the "possible target function".

Re: Still unclear on Problem 6
Let's say the hypothesis is "returns 0 for all three points".
The following target function is defined on 8 points, agrees with the hypothesis, and agrees with D. [ x_n; y_n] [0,0,0;0] [0,0,1;1] [0,1,0;1] [0,1,1;0] [1,0,0;1] [1,0,1;0] [1,1,0;0] [1,1,1;0]  [ x_n; y_n] [0,0,0;0] [0,0,1;0] [0,1,0;1] [0,1,1;0] [1,0,0;1] [1,0,1;0] [1,1,0;0] [1,1,1;0] also agrees with the hypothesis, but it does not agree with D, hence not one of the 8 target functions.

Understood. :) Thanks Prof Yaser and Butterscotch
