How the bloody hell are we supposed to resolve that conflict?

Given that there are three different answers, I could say it's 33% chance.

isnt it B?
since 25% is up there twice

Yea it's B)

Because normally it is a 25% chance, but since there are two 25% answers and one of them is the correct answer, it brings you down to 50% odds.

If it was a blind question where you had to chose one of the four to find 25% hiding under it, sure. You have a 50% chance of guessing 25% right. Think of the ball hiding under the cup game.

But if the *real* answer is something other than 25% then you have a 1/3.

It is B, but the 25% is irrelevant. If choices A & D were some other number (as long as they're identical), it is still 50%.

But there is only 1 choice with 50%, which makes it a 25% chance. :hmm:

:biggrin:
