button as in clothing? button of a keyboard? button to be pressed? A button to help him? To be pressed by someone else? Death relevant? Does such button activate something relevant? A machinery? Hospitals relevant? Do people lives depend on such button?

old and feeble = adjectives referred to the same HAM? HAF? Object? Tangible object? to different ones? feeble in the sense that can be hardly heard? It's sensible? It's fragile?
old = ancient? aged? With respect to human age? feeble because it's old?

button as in clothing? No. button of a keyboard? No. button to be pressed Yes. A button to help him? Help whom? To be pressed by someone else? By whom? It is to be pressed by someone. Death relevant? No. Does such button activate something relevant? Yes. A machinery? Yes. Hospitals relevant? No. Do people lives depend on such button? Assume no (it can happen.

Ok so a button to be pressed by someone to activate a machinery for the feeble and old object right?
Is the button just for the old and feeble? Are there younger and stronger versions of the same object If so: new models? Newly produced? Is the object usually consumed? Used every day by people? Is it a final product? Does it become feeble after usage? After a single usage? Due to wear? To persistent usage? To a single usage?

Is the object: a car? A pen? A ball? A mean of transport? A PC? A device? A piece of clothing? An appliance? a book? an object related to technology? Food? raw material?

Does the "for" here means: to adjust the object To repair it? To make it less feeble? Can the object become less feeble? Or is the fact of being feeble irreversible as the fact of being old? Is any game relevant (e.g. the machines that catch an object after having inserted a coin and pressed a button)?

The one who presses the button: a worker? a customer? someone having previously inserted a coin? Someone passing by?

feeble as "expired"? Does the object become feeble due to usage? neglect? Lack of maintenance? Does the fact of being old and feeble: add value to the object (e.g. wine, the older the better)? subtract value to the object?

Is the button controlling remotely the machinery (e.g a TV)? Is the button on the machinery? Does the machinery: destroy the old and feeble object? Detect its presence? Feed it? Identify it? Classify it as old and feeble? Select it? Use it? Feed itself with the object?

Ok so a button to be pressed by someone to activate a machinery for the feeble and old object right? "For" may not be the best word, but this is essentially correct.
Is the button just for the old and feeble? No. Are there younger and stronger versions of the same object Yes. If so: new models? Newly produced? Yes to both. Is the object usually consumed? No. Used every day by people? Yes. Is it a final product? Yes. Does it become feeble after usage? No. After a single usage? No. Due to wear? Usually not, but it's not unheard of. To persistent usage? To a single usage? No to both.

Is the object: a car? It can be, but not necessarily. A pen? A ball? No to both. A mean of transport? Yes, always. A PC? A device? A piece of clothing? An appliance? a book? No to all. an object related to technology? Yes. Food? raw material? No to both.

Does the "for" here means: to adjust the object To repair it? To make it less feeble? No to both. Can the object become less feeble? Technically yes, but it's not common. see next. Or is the fact of being feeble irreversible as the fact of being old? You can assume so. Is any game relevant (e.g. the machines that catch an object after having inserted a coin and pressed a button)? No.

The one who presses the button: a worker? a customer? someone having previously inserted a coin? Someone passing by? This is closest, and sometimes true.

feeble as "expired"? No. Does the object become feeble due to usage? neglect? Lack of maintenance? No to all. Does the fact of being old and feeble: add value to the object (e.g. wine, the older the better)? Some may say so, though most do not. subtract value to the object? Yes for age, yope for feebleness.

Is the button controlling remotely the machinery (e.g a TV)? No. Is the button on the machinery? No. Does the machinery: destroy the old and feeble object? Detect its presence? Feed it? Identify it? Classify it as old and feeble? Select it? Use it? Feed itself with the object? No to all.

Is the object: a car? It can be, but not necessarily --> can the object be part of a car? Or can the object per se be a car? An airplane? A bike? a train? a boat? Others? a mean of transport for humans? For waste? (e.g. a button like a flush) Pipes? Do newer models need a button as well? Mean of transport in the sense that it is driven by humans to go from one place to another? Or a button is pressed and then it brings humans (or someone/something else) from a place to another as a consequence of the button being pressed?

Does it become feeble just because of passing of time? as a natural process?
A mean of transport? Yes, always. --> wheels? batteries? An engine? does it have wheels? relevant?

Someone passing by? This is closest --> in streets? Inside buildings? are museums relevant?

No to both. Others? Yes. a mean of transport for humans? Yes. For waste? (e.g. a button like a flush) Pipes? No. Do newer models need a button as well? The button isn't normally used in response to newer models, but it can happen. Mean of transport in the sense that it is driven by humans to go from one place to another? Yes. Or a button is pressed and then it brings humans (or someone/something else) from a place to another as a consequence of the button being pressed? No.

Does it become feeble just because of passing of time? as a natural process? No to both.
A mean of transport? Yes, always. --> wheels? Yes. batteries? Sometimes. An engine? Yes. does it have wheels? Yes. relevant? Yes.

Someone passing by? This is closest --> in streets? This. Inside buildings? are museums relevant?

Is the button part of the object? Part of street signaling? Is it mainly used by people in other means of transport? By people walking? Crossing street? By anyone? By a group of people (e.g. blind people)?

Is it used by people to signal their presence? To start/stop a device? Traffic lights? Is the button far from the object? In the object? Independent from the object? In streets? Anyone have a button? Is it used to call police? Is the button added to other already present buttons? Do people need to search it? Is it signaled?

Is the object a general vehicle? A general vehicle in streets? A general vehicle parked? An old vehicle? Is the object feeble in the sense that its engines are not powerful (e.g. a Fiat compared to a Ferrari)? Is there an objective way to classify the objrct as old and feeble? License plate? Rust? Are such vehicles used for criminal aims (e.g. bombs inside such vehicles/terrorist attacks?)? By criminals?

Is there a relevant reason why old and feeble needs a button while younger don't? If so, a relevant technology not implemented in older models? Horn relevant? Start/stop system? Cabriolet? Smoking in the car?

Is the button part of the object? No. Part of street signaling? No. Is it mainly used by people in other means of transport? This. By people walking? Crossing street? By anyone? By a group of people (e.g. blind people)? No to all.

Is it used by people to signal their presence? No. To start/stop a device? Yesish. Traffic lights? No. Is the button far from the object? DOYD of "far". In the object? No. Independent from the object? Yes. In streets? Technically, yes. Anyone have a button? No. Is it used to call police? No. Is the button added to other already present buttons? There are other buttons near it. Do people need to search it? Possibly. Is it signaled? What do you mean?

Is the object a general vehicle? Yesish - a motor vehicle. A general vehicle in streets? Yes. A general vehicle parked? No. An old vehicle? The button is presed in response to old motor vehicles. Is the object feeble in the sense that its engines are not powerful (e.g. a Fiat compared to a Ferrari)? Correct, but Fiat vs Ferrari is not the relevant comparison. Is there an objective way to classify the objrct as old and feeble? Sometimes. License plate? No. Rust? No. Are such vehicles used for criminal aims (e.g. bombs inside such vehicles/terrorist attacks?)? By criminals? Irrelevant.

Is there a relevant reason why old and feeble needs a button while younger don't? FA. If so, a relevant technology not implemented in older models? This is relevant. Horn relevant? Start/stop system? Cabriolet? Smoking in the car? No to all.

Windscreen relevant? Are noises relevant? Are old and feeble out of production relevantly? Are old and feeble vehicles driven by people?

Is the button pressed just in response to old motor vehicles? While driving? Electric bikes relevant? Motored bikes vs normal bikes? Is the button part of newer vehicles? Part of a device? Of a PC/Phone? Of a screen?
Is pollution relevant?

Is the relevant button pressed when in a row? When in a row with old and feeble vehicles? When old and feeble vehicles are parked? When newer vehicles are parked? In an accident? Is the button pressed to activate something? To deactivate something? E.g. sensors/cameras? For instance when two newer vehicles are about to crash, sensors do acrivare automatically signaling the distance to the other vehicle, hence the two drivers can somehow coordinate each other moves (manoeuvre) in order not to crash. With an old and feeble vehicle instead the driver of the older vehicle has not such technology hence the driver of the newer vehicle if he/she followed rhe sensors he/she could risk to crash with the other vehicle.

Towing old and feeble vehicles relevant? Campers relevant? Being behind an old vehicle on a climb?

a relevant technology not implemented in older models? This is relevant --> does the button activate it? Radio/music relevant? 4x4? Airbags? Automatic shifting? Energy to feed the vehicle? Hybrid vehicles? Arrows? Internet relevant? Apps? Maps? Lights?

Windscreen relevant? No. Are noises relevant? No. Are old and feeble out of production relevantly? Only old. Are old and feeble vehicles driven by people? Yes.

Is the button pressed just in response to old motor vehicles? Old and/or feeble motor vehicles only. While driving? Yes. Electric bikes relevant? No. Motored bikes vs normal bikes? Only motored bikes are relevant. Is the button part of newer vehicles? Yes, but bewarew of FA. Part of a device? Controls for a device. Of a PC/Phone? No. Of a screen? Possibly, but most often not.
Is pollution relevant? Yesish.

Is the relevant button pressed when in a row? It can be. When in a row with old and feeble vehicles? This would be a situation where it would be pressed. When old and feeble vehicles are parked? No. When newer vehicles are parked? No. In an accident? Not relevantly. Is the button pressed to activate something? Sort of. To deactivate something? Sort of. E.g. sensors/cameras? No. For instance when two newer vehicles are about to crash, sensors do acrivare automatically signaling the distance to the other vehicle, hence the two drivers can somehow coordinate each other moves (manoeuvre) in order not to crash. Nothing like this. With an old and feeble vehicle instead the driver of the older vehicle has not such technology hence the driver of the newer vehicle if he/she followed rhe sensors he/she could risk to crash with the other vehicle. No.

Towing old and feeble vehicles relevant? Campers relevant? No to both. Being behind an old vehicle on a climb? Not necessarily, but this would be one situation where the button would be pressed.

a relevant technology not implemented in older models? This is relevant --> does the button activate it? No. Radio/music relevant? 4x4? Airbags? Automatic shifting? Energy to feed the vehicle? Hybrid vehicles? Arrows? Internet relevant? Apps? Maps? Lights? No to all.

Is the button directly pressed by the driver? Or maybe it does activate (deactivate) automatically in response to something (e.g. an action of the driver, polluted air...)?

Once the button is pressed does the relevant technology activate until the button is pressed again? Relevant?

Does the something activated by the button make the air less polluted? Does it activate something that protects the driver of the new vehicle (e.g. windows/ air inside the car/air conditioning...)? Is the button compulsory in new vehicles? In new cars?

Is the button pressed if a new vehicle is driven in a highway and meet for half a second an old and feeble vehicle going the other way? If so is the button connected to sensors? Can the driver of new vehicles choose not to oress the button? Is the driver of the old vehicle aware that drivers with new vehicles press the button? Are they aware if they don't press the button? Relevant? Are drivers of old vehicles prfessionals? Do they drive such vehicles as a job?

Is the button present in all types of vehicles? In police cars? Taxes? Ambulances?

Once the button is pressed does the relevant technology activate until the button is pressed again? Correct. Relevant? Somewhat.

Does the something activated by the button make the air less polluted? Yesish, explore. Does it activate something that protects the driver of the new vehicle (e.g. windows/ air inside the car This./air conditioning...)? Yes. Is the button compulsory in new vehicles? No. In new cars? No, but it's there.

Is the button pressed if a new vehicle is driven in a highway and meet for half a second an old and feeble vehicle going the other way? Probably. If so is the button connected to sensors? No.

Is it pushed in response to thick exhaust? Is it an AC control? Perhaps the one that switches air intake from outside the car to recycling interior air?

Is it pushed in response to thick exhaust? Yes. Is it an AC control? Perhaps the one that switches air intake from outside the car to recycling interior air? Exactly.

SPOILER: a button to press to avoid inhaling the nasty exhaust from vehicles without catalytic converters, which are mostly old cars, and "feeble" motorcycles and mopeds. I passed a car belching oil smoke the other day, and realized I could've added "the sick" to the puzzle statement.
Thanks for playing!
