The answer is B.

If you were to to close your eyes and randomly point to an answer on the board you would have a 25% chance of selecting B. There are two options for 25% on the board, which means there is a 50% chance of randomly choosing A or D. Both A and D accurately describe the odds of selecting B.

The question in itself is a paradox. You can flip flop between A/D and B, but the real trick is choosing an answer which can be defined (IE, is just one answer, not two like "A and D") and also is true. So...

The correct answer is B, because there is a 50% of guessing A or D. And and D both represent the statistical chance of guessing B.

0% It's a paradox. No matter what answer you choose, it's always wrong.
Correct answer will change with the answer you choose; It's either A/D or B, but when you choose A/D, correct answer becomes B & when you chose B, the correct answer becomes A/D.

nothing better than people trying to rationalize a solution to a paradox

Why are people trying to answer a question when none of the answer could be correct.

You people are literally too stupid to insult.

The question has nothing to do with the outcome, it's asking "what are your chances" not "what is the correct answer".

Ergo, if there are 4 answers, you have 25%, and since we don't know the answer, it might be A/D.

Ergo, there are 3 solutions.

1. Disregard the answers, and look at the questions statistically. 25% chance to choose the right one not minding that A/D are the same answer.
2. If we know the answer, but are just calculating the chances, the answer goes as:
a) correct answer is 25%, chances are 50%
b) correct answer is 50%, chances are 25%
3. The stupidest of possible ways to interpret this.
If there are 4 answers, 2 of which are the same, that leaves us with 3 practical answers, resulting in a 1/3 chance to hit the right one, if we choose not to involve one of the 25% answers. But the question doesn't state that we can eliminate an answers, so there goes that.

To summarize, The most logical answer would be 25%, because it doesn't contradict with itself as a statement with the outcome of the "equation".

Math all up in this bitch.

The answer would be 25% chance as there are 4 answers but since there are 2 25% answers that would imply a 50% chance. Which brings it back to 25% chance. its asking your chances of choosing a correct answer ya but in choosing the 50% as the correct answer you'd be wrong, since that would mean there is a 25% chance.

So you cannot be right in any answer as in choosing one would just mean that the other answer is right.

TL;DR saying ergo does not make you smart

25% chance of choosing the correct answer randomly; picking one answer out of 4.   
1/4 = 25%. but as we know, a & d are both 25% (2/4), so i guess that then means we have a 50% chance of choosing the correct answer. So the answer is D. 50%   
   
but in choosing as the correct answer as 50% that would then make the REAL correct answer 25%, since there is only a 25% chance of randomly picking 50%.    
   
I dont see anyway around it

Come on guys.. It's 50%. If you choose an answer at random in any multiple choice with 4 choices, you have 25% chance of getting the correct answer. Now, we have the correct answer twice here, in A and D. Therefore, we have 50% chance of getting the correct answer by guessing randomly in this case, hence B is correct.
User avatar #206 to #196 - SniperKitty (10/20/2012) [-]
No, there is no real answer. Yes the answer would be 25% if there weren't two alike answers, because there are the likelyhood is 50%. BUT because there is only ONE 50% answer it again makes the answer 25% which goes back to there being two answers with 25% making the answer 50%. But again because there is only one 50% there is only 25% chance of getting it correct by picking randomly, etc etc. There is no correct answer to it.

imo, 75% because you could justify 3 of the answers there.

50%, you either get it right or you don't

I think this is the third or fourth time I see this on here, and every time the comments section is the same.   
The terms of the question depend upon the answer, and the answer depends upon the terms of the question.   
Full circle.   
There is no answer. Stop trying to figure it out ffs.

The correct answer is 1/3, or 33.3....%, because if you say the answer is 25%, there are two of those, meaning to guess would put the answer at 50%. If the true answer is 50%, then it goes back to there being only a 1/4 chance of guessing right, moving the answer back to 25%. Since we are guessing the answer at random, and not the letter, that leaves 3 answers, 25% (which only counts as one actual answer), 50%, and 60%. Assuming one of these would have to be correct, the answer would have to be 33%, which means none of those answers are correct, which means it's 0%... **** it I'm going to go masturbate or do something more useful than try to answer a question that has no true answer.
