Two of the answers are 25%, so you have a 50% chance of getting it right.

CA was right

if twenty five percent were the right answer, then you would have a fifty percent chance of guessing the correct answer, but that would make the correct answer 50%, and only one of the answers is fifty percent, which would therefore make the correct answer 25% but there are two answers stating 25% which would mean you have a 50% chance of getting it right if the answer were twenty five percent.

But isn't there some thing, like you have to consider that there is an obvious miscorrect answer, so that eliminates one, so 33% and two of them are the same...

Forget that, one of them is zero so if that one is right, it is impossible. So C is eliminated. 33%.

Two of them are the same... Shit, it's like the movie 21 I forgot what he said...

I would say 50%. C is impossible and two are the same. Basically you have two answers, but I think if you get into more advanced math, the answer is different, making this question void.

but, if the answer was 0% then you would have a 25% chance of picking the right answer, making the answer b) 50% because there are two twenty five % answers. and if the answer were 33% you would have a 0% chance of picking the right answer, making the coreect answer c), which would in turn give you a twenty five percent chance of picking the right answer, making the answer b) 50%.

If the answer is zero percent, then it's wrong. You can't have no chance of getting it right out of four. It's impossible. Making it 33%. But two answers are the same. 50%. BUT there is some sort of equation that I don't know at the moment that takes in consideration of various factors.

I don't want to put it in terms like this, but I'm going to because I lack a better example. Flip a coin fifty times, basic probability says 25% of the time, it will come up heads. However, this does not always happen. (I don't want to use this example because that's more of a chance thing whereas this is a fixed answer... But it's the best I have at the moment.)

Has anyone seen the movie 21? Where he's in class and is asked to choose between three doors, two have a prize and one has a goat, what are his chances of getting what he wants? This is a SIMILAR situation.

I'm saying the question is void because it does not have the correct answer.

ding ding ding, Its a paradox. No matter what the answer is, the fact that it is the answer makes the answer wrong, you cannot ever pick a correct answer, however, the correct answer cannot be 0% probability, because that answer also is wrong, no mathematical equation can ever give you the answer, because of the way the question is worded.
