I'll admit it, I have no idea what the answer is. Is there even an answer to this?

Regardless... when in doubt go with C. I pick C.

B) 50%

EDIT: Well actually it should be either A or D given there's 4 options...

But you have twice as much chance of choosing 25%...

#4

33.3...% I would have thought.

#5

There's a 50% chance of saying 25%... 25% chance of saying 50% and 25% chance to say 60%... so I would say there's no chance

#6

There's a 50% chance of saying 25%... 25% chance of saying 50% and 25% chance to say 60%... so I would say there's no chance

Yeah I think that's the answer too, 0 percent.

#7

B) 50%

The correct answer is 25%, there are two 25% answers out of 4 total answers, therefore, the probability of getting it correct is 50%.

This is assuming I read the question correctly, the wording is confusing me

#8

This is a paradox no?

#9

sees you got this of 9gag.

leaves thread.

leaves thread.

#10

There is no correct answer.

#11

The question says "if you chose at random", in that case its a 25% chance.

#12

It's either "Fuck this I'm leaving" or 50%

Edit: I've thought about it. The chances of randomly choosing the correct answer from a 4-way multiple choice question is 25%. The thing is that this one is actually very generic in that it's basically saying just that, but in fancy words. So logically, the answer is 25%, except because there are two answers that are 25%, your chances are doubled.

Edit2: FUCK THIS I DON'T EVEN CARE ANY MORE

Not really, because two of the answers are the same (25%).

#15

I got it. The answer is 0%.

#16

But if 50 percent is the correct answer, you only would have 25 percent chance of getting it right...

#17

Paradox it is, that was just a first impression

#18

I'd go with zero

#19

You have 3 different answers, so it's the chance of getting it right.

33.3%

33.3%

#20

You have 3 different answers, so it's the chance of getting it right.

33.3%

But 33.3% is not a choice

#21

You have 3 different answers, so it's the chance of getting it right.

33.3%

If there are 2 red balls, 1 blue ball, and 1 green ball. What are the odds of you picking a red one if you were to blidnly grab one out of a bucket.

You are assuming that 25% would be the right answer, which isn't true.

EDIT: none of these answers are correct, so 'no answer possible' would be the only right thing to say about this.

That's irrelevant, 33.3...% is the only right answer when there's 3 different options. It's either that or 'no answer possible'.

You are assuming that 25% would be the right answer, which isn't true.

It doesn't matter if it's right or wrong. It's still an option.

The are 4 selections you could make (A-D), each one is 25%. Picking at random would have be believe they randomly select A-D not, 25, 50, or 60.

But if we don't know which one is the right answer then we've got a 33.3...% chance again.

#25

i don't get it.

#26

If 25% is the correct answer, we have 50%.

If 25% is not the correct answer, 33.3'%.

If we count the two 25%'s as separate answers, despite the fact they are quantitatively identical, there is a 25% chance.

It's not that difficult. Because it's ambiguous, it falls into one of these three scenarios.

#27

It's impossible to be correct.

#28

0% Wasn't too hard, but nice to get my brain moving. Paradox indeed.

#29

0% there is no answer.

#30

There is no spoon.

#31

What kind of stupid multiple choice question has the same answer twice?

#32

It's 0.

Wierd not more people figure it out.

Wierd not more people figure it out.

#33

It's 0.

Wierd not more people figure it out.

Is it really weird that not all people are mathematically minded?

Ya gimp.

#34

0 is not an answer.

#35

There isn't a right answer, the question is a paradox.

#36

How many people in the world are asking this question right now?

#37

The more I read what the Pit has to say, the more confused I get.

#38

The answer is most definitely not 0.

#39

Again, there is

A and D must be false because if they were correct, the answer would then be 50%. However, as it stands on the blackboard, the answers A and D both give 25%, not 50%.

So A and D are out.

B is not right, because the chance of randomly choosing it is not 50%. It is 25%, one of four.

For C, same reason as with B.

My work here is done!

**no**correct answer, logically go through each option and you'll see why.A and D must be false because if they were correct, the answer would then be 50%. However, as it stands on the blackboard, the answers A and D both give 25%, not 50%.

So A and D are out.

B is not right, because the chance of randomly choosing it is not 50%. It is 25%, one of four.

The answer depends on what is correct. Surely, if the correct answer is 25% then you have a 50% chance of getting it right. If the answer is either 50% or 60%, then they each have a 25% of being picked.
