In brief: Difficult/rule out
Ganser syndrome is a type of dissociative disorder in which individuals give "nonsense" answer to questiosn, seem disoriented and confused, and may describe hallucinations or delusions.
The trouble is that none of these symptoms are objectively verifiable, so they are easily faked. Fortunately, the syndrome is rare. Diagnosis relies on observation and consistency of presentation.Over time.
