Answer what? I don't see a question. As to the shaft going through the hole... that's a given, in the original statement.
Disregarding that one point, I agree with BGL's post.
But this is really a rhetorical question. It cannot be answered from the information presented, which is what a shop normally receives.
That was the whole point of the exercise. The inconsistency must be resolved by the customer, as BGL said, not by the shop.
And Gordon, please don't take your hat off. We'd be blinded by the glare (unless it's night time).

We receive prints for several types of fittings, but we have no idea what they are going to. Thus, we make the part to print, and if there was a design error, we know when they order the same part in "Rev B".
Although there have been times when a machinist has come to me (inspection) to point out an obvious flaw, such as the diameter of the shaft being larger than the minor diameter of a thread beyond it. In that case, I contact the customer and let them make the change. They appreciate the problem being fixed before all the money goes into production of the part, and I get to live in my black and white QC world....it's either in tolerance, or it isn't.

This is just me being me but when I write a word like "answer" as I did I also use it to mean "respond".
