Doug, It seems to me to verge towards the absurd to say that Abe has an obligation to open the safe. Given the initial conditions you lay out, my sense of the matter is that Abe is obligated to try to open the safe but nothing beyond that. In other words, he has a 1 in 4 chance of getting it right. He has to try. But to say that he is obligated to effect the opening of the safe appears nonsensical to me given that, under the initial conditions, he doesn't know the combination. Am interested to find out what you think about the situation.
