My random generator showed me the answer "hje57 7fjklå"
If you chose an answer at random the chance would most likely be 0%, but the question is poorly written.
What is the actual question? Do they mean "answer" or "alternative shown below"?

Wrong, because there are two 25% answers. Meaning that there's a 50% chance of getting 25%. But there are two other answers, so that gives essentially three choices. So the correct answer isn't even on the board, which is 33.3%

XbloodwolfX (10/20/2012) []
Though, it also depends on which answer is the right answer i suppose. Because if the answer is 25% then there is a 50% chance of getting it. But that would mean the answer is 50%, which there is only a 25% chance of getting. Which takes us back to "What if the answer was 25%"? It's a paradox. But i broke that paradox by just saying it would be a 33.3% chance :D

The answer is B. If all the answers were different, your odds at random would be 25%, but revealing that two of the answers are correct makes it 50%. The trick is that the board asks what your odds are of answering THIS quesiton correctly, not just any multiple choice question with four answers.

As there are 2 25% means It's not 25%.
So logical person would conclude that the 2 of those answers are not correct.
As so you have 50%, will you do the 25% or the 50%, but kinda means the correct answer would be 50%.
But ofcourse its a paradox and every1 has their own theory...

If you chose at ramdom, what the options says doesn't matter. Unless offcourse that A and D counts as the same answer, in witch case it is a paradox.

This is equally paradoxal to:
What would happen if pinnochio said: "My nose will grow now"?
(If nothing happens, it means he lied, which means his nose will grow, which mean he told the thruth, which means nothing would happen, which means he lied, which means his nose would grow, and so on.)
In this cane, answering 50% makes the answer to the question 25% which makes the answer 50% which makjes the answer 25% and so on

But if nothing happens (i.e his his nose doesn't grow) it means he lied. If he lies his nose grows which would mean he told the truth, but his nose wonät grow if he's telling the truth.
You can't apply normal logic to a paradox. Every correct answer changes the condition which will also change which answer is correct.

That's probably true, however, his feelings are an irellevant variable when in my example used for explaining a paradox. The conditions of the paradox is:
>Pinnochios nose grows when he lies.
>His nose doesn't grow when he's telling the truth.
What happens if he states: "My nose will now grow"?
Your first reply lacked nessecary reason for descussing a paradox, and now this comment is just trying to hide behind irellevant facts that deasent even change the fact the the original content acctually is a paradox, and that my example is not for explaining why pinochio's nose grows, but instead trying to examplify what a paradox is

comicallotus (10/20/2012) [] 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

Your reasoning is correct but incomplete. The problem is that your reasoning continues like this forever, making it a paradox. Every correct answer also changes the conditions for the initial question and , thus, changing the answer.
Like this
chance of picking ONE correct answer out of FOUR: 1/4 = 25% chance
chance of picking an answer that says 25%: 2/4 = 50%
chance of picking an answer that says 50%: 1/4 = 25%
chance of picking an answer that says 25%: 2/4 = 50%
chance of picking an answer that says 50%: 1/4 = 25%
chance of picking an answer that says 25%: 2/4 = 50%
chance of picking an answer that says 50%: 1/4 = 25%
etc.

chance of picking an answer that says 25%: 2/4 = 50%
chance of picking an answer that says 50%: 1/4 = 25%
chance of picking an answer that says 25%: 2/4 = 50%
chance of picking an answer that says 50%: 1/4 = 25%

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.
This isn't a question of probability as much as it is logic. Pure probability cannot be paradoxical unless dealing with hypothesis..

as we don't know the question, we cannot know which answer is wrong.

The "other" question doesn't exist. The question which the quistion refers to is "this question". What is the probability of answering correctly to THIS QUESTION, as in the question that you are currently reading.
What doesent exist though is a logical, rational answer. The answer is paradoxal, meaning that any answer changes the conditions for the question, thus changing the answer.

They're asking what the probability of picking the correct answer is. They're not asking what the correct answer is. This fact makes it a paradox.
> If you pick 1 answer randomly out of 4 there 1/4 thet it's correct 1/4 = 25%
> However, 2 of the answers say 25 %, so the probability of being correct is 2/4 = 50%
So the correct answer is 50%, well, no. Because theres ony 1/4 answers that say 50% so the answer would be 25%, which there are 2/4 answers of so now the answer is 50% etc. etc. etc.
It goes on linke that forever, you can't answer correctly on that question,

You obviously didn't even read what i wrote, answering one answer will result in the conditions for the actual question changing, thus changing the answer.
> If you guess randomly at one answer out of fout, the chance of being correct is 25%
> Since the correct answer is 25% and 2 of the answers say 25% that means there's a 50% chance of being correct, now all of a sudden the ocrrect answer is 50 %
> But since there's only one answer that says 50% you will only have 25 % chance of guessing correctly.
and so the loop continues
it's called a paradox and you can't apply regular logic on it. Both answers are correct while, simultaneously, none of them are.

It is not a sequence. It only needs to be explained in a sequence.
All the iterations occur at the same time, since both answers are simultaneously correct and incorrect all the time. As long as there are multiple answers that say 25% there can be no correct answer to the question.

25%, since there is a total of 4 answers, and one of them has to be correct. Noting, of course, that 25% is 1/4 of the 100%.
