hahahahahaha

what's funny is that I would think the teacher was trying to imply that B) is the right answer but it's not...lol

If you look at it from a perspective of a straight up random selection of 4 possible answers it's 25%.

However, 25% is two of the possible answers, so it would be 50%...

However, 50% is one of the possible answers also, so it would be 75%.

However, 75% is not a possible answer, so it would be 0%....

I see what you are saying but if a random draw on 4 possible answers ,,,the answer is 25%. It doesn't matter what the other choices are. That's a trap to read any other answer other than 25%. they mean nada.

The whole point of this one is that there is no correct answer given those choices. Made me think tho.

The answers are not evenly distributed. There's a 50% chance of randomly choosing "25%" and 25% of choosing one of the other two.

There is no answer to the question. It's a paradox.

I think your math might be a little off. You can't count the real answer into the question's hypothesis. You still have a 1 in 4 chance when answering randomly. But, because the values of two of the choices are the same, you could say you have a 2 in 4 chance to get in right. The answer is 50%.

The chance of you randomly choosing the 50% answer is 25%. The chance of you randomly picking one of the 25% answers is 50%.

Ain't no correct answer IMO! A real mind-bender! Like this guy:
