The objective is to find my rule.
Anything not to be answered by rule in italics.

I'm thinking that wordcount is more relevant than what was typed, and that in your response whether or not the first letter is capitalized is all that matters, but I'm really not sure...

One?
one?
oNE?
Two Two?
two two?
TWO TWO?
Three Three Three?
ThReE ThReE ThReE?
Four Four Four Four?
Five Five Five Five Five?
Six Six Six Six Six Six?
Seven Seven Seven Seven Seven Seven Seven?

I like to talk quite a lot, mostly in really, really long sentences -- although I'm quite sure that you already noticed that -- and I'm quite interested to see what kind of response you give, in length, order, meaning, and structure.

Short
Shorter
short
shorter

Is the time relevant? Is the number of words in the question relevant? Is the number of words beginning with capitals in the answer relevant? The arrangement of words beginning with capitals?

Q q q q q q q?

Is your response based only on the wordcount of the question? Are the lowercase words which come before the first capitalized word in your response relevant?

I'm going to hazzard a guess...

You're printing the number of words in the question in binary. Words beginning with a lowercase letter are considered to be 0s, and those beginning with a capital are 1s.

Am I right?
