It is sometimes the case in everyday situations that insufficient information is available in order for us to make a choice between different possibilities. For example, when buying a raffle ticket, it is impossible to know in advance what the winning ticket number will be (unless only one ticket has been sold!). When the draw is made, the holder of the winning ticket number collects the prize and it is not possible to change the ticket you hold for a winning ticket. Let us consider another context, that of solving a crossword puzzle. When a clue has several different candidate solutions, it is not possible to decide which is the correct choice until several other intersecting solutions have been found. We could make an assumption about which is the mostly likely solution; if we later find that we have made the wrong choice, it is possible to amend our entry and replace it with the alternative solution.
