I haven't seen anyone get this right.

0% is not an option. You can't pick it.

the options are:
25% which is wrong because there is a 50% chance of picking it.
50% which is wrong because there is a 25% chance of picking it.
60% which is wrong because there is a 25% chance of picking it.

None of the answers are correct. The question therefore, is inherently flawed.

But the answer is 50% because there is a 50% chance of picking 25% which is the right answer.

There is a 50% percent chance of picking 25% and a 25% chance of picking 50 percent so both answers are wrong.

But the chance of picking of picking 25% is 50% Which means that the answer to the question is 50% regardless of its value. You have to take it at face value before applying it to one of the options.

You're saying that the one and only correct answer is B) 50%

Why? Because you have a 50% chance of picking either A) 25% or D) 25%. 25% being the one and only correct answer.

Yes, I know its strange, but its a paradox remember? By picking 50% you ARE picking 25% you're simply picking them both

No. You're picking a wrong answer.

There is no paradox here. There is a simple fallacy that voids all 4 answers.

Look at the question like this.

Is OP a faggot?
A)Possibly
B)Probably
C)No
D)Possibly

The correct answer to the question is yes, but since that's not one of the options you can't just settle for possibly or probably. Therefore the question is flawed.

This analogy is also SEVERELY flawed. But so is your logic so let's call it quits.

So if no correct answer to the question exist,
The real answer is 0% and since it is not an option, so the chance to choose
at random is 0%, it is the correct answer
Paradox solved - there is an answer, only it is not listed

I see your point, but the nature of the question does not allow you to use and answer that is not listed.

Because the correct answer is not listed, and because the question does not allow you to pick a non-listed answer, the question is flawed.

THIS IS TRUE AND BEFORE  ANY ONE GIVES ME THAT ******** ABOUT MOVING PORTALS IN PORTAL 2...   
   
the portals that move in portal 2, are not moving to the direction that the portal is facing   
   
in portal 2 you shoot a portal at the ceiling so you could launch yourself up but the launch pad doesn't launch you high enough so glados helps you and lowers the ceiling. because the surface is now moving to the same direction that the portal is facing, your portal disappears and you have to place it again.   
   
in the level where you must use the lasers to cut the pipes, the surface is moving along the portals x-axis, not Y so the portal doesnt disappear

In the entire game, there is only one moment where portals can actually move, and you've already pointed that out. Don't you think it's unsubstantiated though to draw conclusions only from that? I'm 99% sure the portals were just scripted in that case.

there's no reason for us not to believe that portals have some "laws of movement"

there have been demonstrations where portals haven't been able to move
and there's been a demonstration whee a portal has been able to move

so we can quite easily draw a conclusion that a portal can move, but only when the surface isn't rotating, moving diagonally or moving towards/away from the direction the portal is facing.

You're taking the game WAY too seriously. There have been exactly two demonstrations, and the chances are that they have just been scripted in without any deeper thought from the devs. Can you just please accept that this is a hypothethical scenario and that everyone knows that portals in the game cannot move.
There is no point getting pissed off over the internet over this.

Don't do this, please. There's always ONE person who just has to misunderstand the situation and state what everyone already knows: Portals cannot be placed on moving surfaces. This is a hypothetical scenario. If you want to nitpick, you could also argue that portals aren't real.

Excuse me..?

No, you misunderstand me, sir. I understand the situation. It's troll physics(hence the troll picture above). It's just the situation of the "Closing portal walls" couldn't be, because of the way the game was designed for portals cannot be placed on moving surfaces. At least in the case of Portal One, I may add. Anytime a portal was placed on a surface, and said surface moved, the portal would vanish. Therefore, in the image above, "Will you survive? If yes, where will you go?" would not even matter. The answer is, "No you will not survive." Given that the portals would vanish, and you'd ultimately be squished between two platforms.

Sorry for seeming serious! I know it was a joke~

And also, picture very much unrelated.

The correct answer would be 25% as there are 4 answers and you are picking one of them ( 1/4 = .25 ).
And this qestions has two answers that say 25%. So 2 of 4 questions are correct, therefore it should be 50% of random picks are correct.
It is quite confusing though because only to this question there are 2 correct answers. Usually you have just one correct out of many and in this case this would be 1 out of 4, ergo 25 percent... man, I love how paradoxons make me feel :D
