A former puzzle of mine asked when 2 is more than 0 but less than 1. The answer was :if you're in love with someone & she has 2 boyfriends, that's more than 0 but less than 1. What's a completely different sort of situation where 2 is more than 0 but less than 1?

Hmmm. Politics relevant?

Are the 2 people the same kind of people as the 0? as the 1? (I mean, e.g. 2 boyfriends, 0 boyfriends and 1 boyfriend)

There's an old saying that, when it comes to getting any work out of them, "One boy is a pretty good boy, two boys are half a boy, three are no boy at all" because they distract one another and horse around. (Apologies to all horses.)

Is the space they take up relevant? Transportation involved? Money? Energy? Does it work with any two people? Do they have to see each other? Hear? Touch? Speak? Be within a certain distance of each other? Would the puzzle work: 10 years ago? 100? 1000? 10000? Language relevant? Thoughts? Communication?

does 'more than' here mean better? more of a problem? more significant? is giving an opinion relevant? hearing something from somebody? if we imagine that there is a certain person who has reason to utter the puzzle statement,would they have met the one person? the two? would they have talked to them? is agreeing relevant? getting a consensus? voting? do the one,two or zero represent the difference in numbers between two groups of people?

some people may even want two husbands. Oh yes. One to cook and one to clean. Muahahaha.

A mortgage? Then again, in my mind zero debt is better... but usually means no house.

Tax Return? I would hate to be a business owner... doing personal AND business taxes would suck.

Boiled chicken liver? Just to say you've tried it... then never again!

Attorney? Real estate agent? Inspector? Some other person with a profession/service you require? But preferably on a VERY limited basis?

boss? it's horrible having more than one boss

person to play a game with? like, if you sit down to play chess, it's better if there's only one - 3 can't play?

or is it another type of opponent? like, you could take on one person in a fight, but two would be much harder

Are you and the one or two people competing for something? Is there something that only one of you can have? Or only two of you can have?

Would anyone feel that the puzzle statement is correct? Would you have to be in a particular situation? Would you have to be in a particular situation for it to arise at all?

Recap? Add the following to the puzzle description: 'More" means more desirable and holds only for a certain sort of person in a certain situation. The "2" in question are people who may, but need not be, friends, acquaintances, colleagues, family members, or enemies , or strangers.

In the case of one person, are they offering you food?
And the same for the second person?

To solidify some ideas:
So the 0<2<1 refers specifically to people of any gender and age excluding young children? and the "more desirable" holds specifically for one person? a group of people? that possess a relationship with the the 0<2<1 people that could potentially be summarised by a single title e.g. boyfriend/aunt/boss/teacher?

Would they come together via the profession of one of them? Would one of them be working for the other? Is the profession of the 0/2/1 relevant? The profession of the group for whom the 0/2/1 are more or less desirable?

Are they lawyers? possiblyJudges? less likely Members of a jury? possibly Police? possibly

Are the 0/1/2 suspected of a crime? yes

********* SPOILER ************

To the police or a district attorney, two suspects for a crime are less than one but more than zero. Please see my ONE new puzzle at the bottom of the page.
