The Truth probability, please help to solve

It is believed that the opponent in the discussion can not be more than 90% wrong ...
And that you yourself can never be more than 90% right ...

What is the minimum percentage probability of truth (or lack thereof) in the discussions?

0 %. You can never be more than 90% right, but your minimum is 0%.

Math Focus: Stochastic processes, statistical inference, data mining, computational linguistics
We'd have to know the proportion of the time that you and your opponent speak.
