The titles of news stories often feature unnecessarily simplistic rhetorical questions to which the answer is obviously ‘yes’ or ‘no’. For example:
Could cricket have a big future in China? Yes. (Will it? Probably not.)
Do slimming clubs work? Yes. (Do they always work, for all people? No.)
Can Tiger Woods end wait for a major at the PGA Championship? Yes. (Will he? Probably not, because there’s too much luck in golf, which makes it harder to predict the winner than for any other major sport.*)
