Normally 25% is the correct answer, but there are two of them, so 50% is the answer, but there is only one 50% answer as a choice, so the answer is 25%, but there are two 25% answers, so the answer is 50%, and so on and so forth.<br /><br />So the question becomes, is there a right answer to this question? Well there has to be, it is implied in the question. So I would say that choice a,b, and d are all technically correct. So you have a 75% chance.Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8584704855043211249.post-82310272964965397502011-12-02T15:35:21.685-08:002011-12-02T15:35:21.685-08:00Wait! Wait!

Although you have ...Wait! Wait! Do over!

But two of the answers are 25%, thereby doubling your chances of being right. 50%.<br /><br />This is to easy, so I am obviously missing something. Looking forward to you filling me in on that.Relax Maxhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/01051381168322495999noreply@blogger.com
