Abstract : The situations occurring in an operetta afford good opportunity for analysis as potential Advice Taker problems since they are approximations to real life problems, yet are simple enough to be reduced to formalizations. With the end in view of sharpening the proposed Advice Taker language and pointing up its deficiencies, the author studies the situation involved in the second act of Gilbert and Sullivan's 'The Mikado'. It is shown how the knot of the situation can be untied in the present formulation of the Advice Taker language.
