Some leads take you where you want to go. Some result in dead ends.

And others give you some of the information you want, but fade away the moment you need them to be really useful.

Then some players get two questions to ask a spirit, and waste them on worthless questions about the spirits personal life. I hate my players some times.

My favourite, from the old over-powered FR campaign in high school:

[Chaos demigod]: "Nyeeheeheeheehee! I'll answer you three questions, anything at all. But I'll also offer to answer three questions asked by [Big Bad Guy]!"

[PC]: "My first question: What questions did [Big Bad Guy] ask?"

[DM]: "...You bastard."

This was the same campaign where the DM's favourite curse was "damned free-thinking PCs" every time one of the players managed to throw him a severe enough curve-ball. Flan was particularly good at doing that.

How I would have responded to the three questions bit.

Me: What all was said - verbatum - in your conversation with the Big Bad?

This way, for one question, I get not only every question the Big Bad asked, but every answer, AND the Big Bad's vocalised thoughts regarding said answers.

How about:

What is the entire verbatum conversation you had with the big bad, followed by the answers to this list of questions?

You should have had the Chaos demigod answer by saying something along the lines of "Nothing! I haven't offered him the questions yet! Next two questions?"
