20 questions

While driving in the car, we play a game called '20 questions'. One player thinks of something, and the others have 20 yes/no questions to guess what it is (20 bits of information is over 1 million separate entities). Typically, the first two questions asked are 'Is it alive or dead?' and, if the answer is 'Dead', the next question was 'Was it once alive?'

Andrew thought of something.
Christopher asked 'Is it alive or dead?'
'Was it once dead?'
'Is it Jesus?'
