I have a minimum limit number, 1, a maximum limit number, 10, an "entity", article, and a question whose answer should state (one between true or false) if the number of current articles exceeded the minimum limit or the maximum limit of allowed articles, ....

Technically speaking, I'm trying to write questions like article is <some words> "deletable"? and article is <some words> "creatable"? (note: one of my requisites is that the way I'd like to "build" questions is that each question should refer to a single article with the verb to be).

In the above case, for both questions, the <some words> value I came up with might be "the last", but I think it doesn't properly ask for answer I am looking for.

So, what <some words> can I use?

I am sorry, but after reading through this question a few times I feel like I don't understand English anymore... – RegDwigнt May 8 '12 at 22:11
"How to name this function/variable in my program" is off-topic as per our faq. I suggest you try asking in SO/Programmers/EL&U chat and seeing if anyone has any suggestions. – waiwai933 May 8 '12 at 22:15
Respectfully, your description is very hard to understand and I'm both a native speaker and a computer scientist. Also, your "questions" of the form article is <some words> "deletable"? are not grammatical English. – Mark Beadles May 8 '12 at 22:24
(maybe, technically, on StackOverflow I would have been better understood...) – user502052 May 8 '12 at 22:36
@RegDwight ΒВBẞ8 - As you can see, there are people that understood my question. So, maybe, it is the case to re-open it. – user502052 May 9 '12 at 6:53
