The question was, "What question would you ask an AI?" What "premise is false"?

The premise that recognizing oneself in a mirror is a benchmark for sentience/self-awareness. It is an interesting question to ask AI but as demonstrated it's not that useful to the topic at hand.

The topic at hand is, "What question would you ask an AI?", no one has set a "benchmark" for anything. The AI reported that it wants others to recognise it as a "person". I would ask a question about a mirror to help find out what it meant by "person". Obviously, one question would be insufficient here but it's a start.
