Jim:

I think the other replies got distracted by the
ghost in the machine issue. For my money, prompt
is a BAD fit as a synonym for ask. I'd rather see
a construction like:

A "yes" answer lets the system find any new or
invalid wuddleblups. The system prompts the user
to add the new ones and delete the invalid ones.

--or--

The system prompts the user to determine whether
it should add the new ones and delete the invalid
ones.
