There's no need for it to work out like that, really.

Avoiding asking specific people "Do you block?" Ask everyone "Any blocks?" If everyone stays silent (or however you conventionally indicate passing in your group), move on.

LSJ's advice in a similar situation:

Note that asking for "Any blocks?" and waiting to observe a period of
attentive silence from B, C, D, and E is often sufficient for B (who
will likely be vocal about "no block") and C, D, and E to confirm
their decisions not to block.

That is, C can't silently forego xeir impulse in the hopes of drawing
out the boost before blocking.

An action cannot reach resolution until all Methuselah's of the non-acting minion declare No Block. This normally happens tacitly, per LSJs example.

However, someone who answers, "I block", before I do because they have a higher priority for declaration, obviates me from answering the question until it is asked again because I would have never had the impulse to answer.

So, if someone blocks and you bypass that block, you need to ask again until all remaining Methuselah's decline. Always ask "Are there any (other) blocks?"
