Note that they have given you the opportunity to make 6 for a world wide top.  How are you going to take advantage of this?

You inquire, and South's play in spades (6) was standard count.  He took some time to decide, so I decided it wasn't a stiff.

The 5 was either 4th best or top of nothing.  I found it hard to believe that North would lead low from J1095(x).

Play S for the Q, it's the percentage guess for the field in 4
Play N for the Q, he's the one that bid and they only have 11 HCP between them
Play S for the Q, the defense against 4 is likely to start with 3 rounds of sspades, and the field will ruff K and pass the J
Play N for the Q, the defense against 4 is likely to start with 3 rounds of spades and the field will ruff with the J
It's a tossup
