How many moles of hydrogen gas would be needed to react with excess carbon dioxide to produce 53.6 moles of water vapor?

The other product is pretty important as it is likely to be methane and the equation needs to balance. One possibility is:
CO2 + 4H2 ----------> CH4 + 2H2O
But you could also have:
CO2 + H2 --------> H2O + CO
CO2 + 2H2 ---------> C + 2H2O
You need clarification as there are three perfectly valid answers.

H2 + CO2 = H2O + ??
It doesn't matter what the other product is, as long as it contains no hydrogen.
(53.6 mol H2O) x (1 mol H2 / 1 mol H2O) = 53.6 mol H2
