@DoubleAA I meant "neither is definitely obligated".

Your initial assumptions are « R'uven, is unsure whether he's fulfilled his obligation » and « Shim'on is also unsure whether he's fulfilled his obligation » and then after your discussion you say « so we should be able to assume at least one is obligated ». IMHO the discussion does not change the initial assumptions. Both are unsure – neither is obligated!

comment How Should I Pray When Alone?
@MonicaCellio yeshiva.co/ask/?id=3233 says “One May say Hallel alone and at home if necessary.” The site quoted above has a comment “What about Hallel? .. I am fond of a Sefaradi sidur (Bnei Tzion) where it says that Hallel (113-118) is said only with minian ...” halachahbyemail.blogspot.co.uk/2009/11/… says “In truth, the requirement is not for a minyan, per se; even having three people present, so that one leads "Hodu" and the others respond, may suffice. (Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 422:2; Mishneh Berurah 422:18)”.
