A's belief that 50 is the maximum can't be correct if B (an
identical individual) can achieve 60.

No, I was assuming that C was correct in that 70 is the maximum
achievable. This thought experiment would be easier to follow
if you tell me what the true maximum is so we can tell whether
someone is correct in their belief.
