Sarik Goyal's bidding problem: K72 KQ985 AQ75 T
Thanks all for your comments! On the actual hand, partner had something like xxx Ax KJxxxx Kx — definitely not what I was prepared for. 3NT by E is down 1 and 5 is down 2, as the opps take the first 3/4 spades and the A off ...
Sarik Goyal's bidding problem: K72 KQ985 AQ75 T
To clarify, do you recommend 4 is a slam try setting as trump? Or something else? In this partnership, we primarily play redwood, but have agreed to play minorwood in a few specific auctions like this one.

Is this restricted choice
If your RHO plays the J, I fail to see how they could have a singleton Q.
Is this restricted choice
That was not really what I meant. I was trying to say that you either expect an opponent to lead the Q from QJ or you expect them to randomize roughly equally. If the former, then there is no restricted choice.
Is this restricted choice
In practice, a player either plays equivalent cards randomly or doesn’t, so restricted choice applies or it doesn’t.
