If you choose an answer to this question at random, what is the chance that you will be correct?
If you have not tried to solve it, have a go now. For everyone else, the answer (kinda) is after the break.
Well, its’ a tricky one. Essentially, there are three answers – 25%, 50% and 60%. So, if you choose one of these at random then you will have a 33% chance of being correct. However, this is not one of the answers, so you are in a somewhat difficult situation. My guess is that there isn’t an answer, but I can see how different linguistic assumptions make for different answers. So….what did you think?
