Is no the correct answer to this question?
You could say "Maybe" as a truthful answer to any yes/no question, unless you take the literal meaning of the word, it "may be," indicating that there is a chance that whatever is in question could be affirmed.
Obviously, "no" cannot be the answer, since it would contradict itself, so the answer must be negative. Something like "nope" or "probably not" would correctly answer the question in the problem without making a contradiction.
Also, for reasons stated above, I would say that "maybe" is an incorrect answer as well.
