Screen are in use. All players are world class. North and East are screen mates.

Opening lead is 10. Jack, Queen, 3.

Now North asks East. Do you have a six card suit?

This question makes East a little bit confused, a small hesitation, and East answers yes because systematically he has shown 6 cards.

Because of this answer, North concludes that A, and a ruff is not enough to kill the contract.

Now North returns a and hoping for the Ace by south and a club return. Well... 10 tricks. Contract made.

1. Is the question appropriate? Does North have any right to know how many declarer holds?

2. Is there some illegal by bidding this suit as a 6 card suit?

3. Is there some MI given here? Should TD adjust the score?
