- Fair statement but if your 'outcome' is the same regardless your choice ... do still believe in your 50:50 assessment? because either choice (A or D) is same outcome - 25% - not forgetting the 'getting an answer correct' element of this question?Nov 2, 2011
- Yes, I still believe my previous statement, cos my pick would be random and not judged by what the options are. If A and D is 50 instead of 25%, then it would all match up.Nov 2, 2011
- So to put this in the context of the original question with 4 optional answers (A,B,C & D) what is the chance of a correct answer picked at random?Nov 2, 2011

- `many of the above people look like fools to me . because they have used 2 %ages in determining answer interchangeably , as the asked %age of the choice to be correct does not correspond to or equal to the %age used in options . in fact the 2nd %age is nothing but a number or a collection of symbols that in general can be either number /word/symbol. again here don't merge meaning of 2 symbols in previous sentence the first one is property of syntax and the second is the type of thing used in syntax ......
now you must see the question in this format :
"if 4 choices are given and 2 of them are equal which one would be the correct ."
it is obvious from the above sentence that no condition is given that summarize conditions as if.....then or case........ break etc
so we can say that it's not a paradox but a fool making scheme ! for being a paradox the statement should satisfy it self to be correct under some restricted conditions .......................Nov 3, 2011
