A man walks into a greengrocers.
I'd like some apples, please.
What about some juicy oranges?
No thanks.
Bananas are cheap right now.
No thanks.
How about grapes?
What sort of apples do you want?

In my experience of this list, and I'm not drawing on any
"transferable skills" here, you answer what was asked. You don't
digress or speculate about what might be meant until you have
exhausted what was originally stated. This is more useful for the OP
and for anyone reading the list archive in the future.

During all this speculation and digression the original question was
answered and resolved, and it had nothing to do with the digressions
and everything to do with what the OP originally stated.
