Does the station name begin with C ?

Obviously not. (12/15)

(did you not see that the station name begins with C? Perhaps you thought it was Cighgate, Carchway or Cotteridge and Whetstone)

Yes (it's Chalk Farm). (13/15)

Logically, by answering yes and no questions you should be able to figure out any randomly selected station or tram stop on the map in 9 moves.
