Here is a fun little question I found, via Flowing Data.
Now, this is very clever, although I really wish the answer for C) was 0% instead of 60%. See, if that was the case then it would make a nice circular puzzle:
- The chance of randomly choosing the correct answer out of four is 25%.
- Clearly the correct answer is 25%.
- But, 25% appears twice in this list meaning the odds to randomly choose the correct answer of 25% is actually… 50%?
- Okay, so 50% is the answer. But I only have a 25% chance of selecting that one.
- I see. So this is actually a paradox, and the odds of selecting the correct answer is really 0%.
- But… 0% is one of the options in the list. Which means I have a 25% chance of choosing it!
- GOTO 2
I’m not sure what the 60% is. Maybe it’s just a random wrong answer, but I can’t escape the notion that maybe 60% has some meaning that’s going over my head. Is there some application of statistics where (through averaging or some such shenanigans) you could end up with an answer of 60%?
In any case, I got a laugh out of it.
