it didn't seem like Nav was asking about being 74 years old, he was stating that it has to be the case if the composer was born before the sinking of the Maine and and after discovery of the neutrino. though I don't think it has to be so. Neutrino was discovered in the 50's...
also take a look at a recap in the previous 30Q's, and try to make one like that. basically, in the recap it's nice to spell out the years, and eleminate questions that are no longer relevant.

No, guesses don't count as questions.

And you are only allowed 1 guess at a composition, unless you're name is Hexameron. :P
