Fix a smooth projective connected curve $X$ over $\overline{\mathbf{Q}}$ of genus $g\geq 1$ and distinct points $x,y \in X$ such that $x-y$ has infinite order in the Jacobian.

Can we always find a finite morphism $X\to \mathbf{P}^1$ which ramifies at $x$ and $y$?

If not, can we always find $x,y\in X$ such that $x-y$ has infinite order in $\mathrm{Jac}(X)$ and a finite morphism $X\to \mathbf{P}^1$ which ramifies at $x$ and $y$?

**Application:** If one of the above questions has a positive answer, Belyi's theorem gives the existence of a finite morphism $X\to \mathbf{P}^1$ which ramifies over exactly three points and such that $x$ and $y$ ramify. From this it is easy to see that there exists a subgroup $\Gamma\subset \Gamma(2)$ of finite index such that $\Gamma$ gives a Belyi uniformization of $X$ and such that the Manin-Drinfeld theorem doesn't hold for $\Gamma$.
