The question is all in the title:

Must askers be able to answer their own question?

This question had been asked before, but may be easier to find than the most directly relevant previous question, Ability to Solve Own Challenge as a Requirement.

There are also relevant answers in Basis for Voting to Close and What details should always be given for a code golf task?

    \$\begingroup\$ This has turned from a simple question into an illegible mess. The edit history is available to anyone who wants to read it, and anyone who doesn't is better served by seeing a refactored question with no strike-throughs, "EDIT"s, etc. \$\endgroup\$ – Peter Taylor Jan 20 '18 at 9:01
