          As A = D, A xor D = 0. So is the answer B?

            A and D are separate answers
            only one of them in correct

            >only one of them in correct
            So which one is it?

            There is no correct answer, that's why it's a shitpost.

            That's fricking bullshit

            the only way to get it right is to guess A or D and hope you picked the same as the question master

            So the chance that you pick the right answer is 50% then

            it's 25% if you pick by random
            50% if you make an educated guess

            >it's 25% if you pick by random
            Then both A and D are right if you ask an unbiased question master

            if A and D were both correct then the answer would be 50% causing a paradox
            the only way this resolves is if only one of A or D is correct. it is implied question master has decided to test your luck instead of your knowledge

        there is no right answer because it is indeterminable:
        If the right answer were to be "50%", then the probability is 25%, so the "50%" answer is wrong. Likewise for "0%".
        And if the right answer is "25%", as you can see, the probability is 50% since there 2/4 answers alike, so that too is wrong.
        Underminable.

    there's no answer, it's an infinite loop that bounces between 25% and 50%

    I'd like to use a 50/50 lifeline.

        Okay, my answer is C: 50%. Final answer.

          13% because you have to minus an element of skill. You're not even being rational

      What if you assume you will use the option to remove 2 answers. The two answers removed are chosen at random from AB, AC, AD, BC, BD, and CD.

      AB, AD, and BD: You can choose C as the right answer.
      AC, BC, CD: You can't get the right answer.
      That is if the 2 removed options are chosen at random, but that's not how the show works.

      They can only remove 2 wrong answers. What happens then? All answers are wrong before the 50/50 lifeline, but after the 50/50 lifeline, there may or may not be the right answer. Therefore my solution is still correct if you choose to view which answers are wrong before the 50/50 lifeline is applied. If it is known by the asker of the question that you will use a 50/50 lifeline, the answer is C, but you also have a 50% chance of having the option for the correct answer (kind of unrelated to the answer C).

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bertrand_paradox_%28probability%29?wprov=sfla1
    There are multiple interpretants of the question, depending on how we use the principle of indifference (like the paradox in the wiki link).

    If the answer is 25% and:
    1) If we choose the options as A, B, C, and D then the chance of being right is 50%, which is incorrect.
    2) If we choose the options as 25%, 0%, and 50%, then the chance of being right is 33%, contradiction.

    If the answer is 50% and:
    1) If we choose the options as A, B, C, and D then the chance of being right is 25%, wrong
    2) If we choose the options as 25%, 0%, and 50%, then the chance of being right is 33%, wrong.
    Similar if the answer was 0%.

    The answer to the question is not provided in the choices. They could a) replace 25% with 33%, or b) replace the 25% with something else and replace 50 or 0% with 25%.
    The confusing part of this is that the choices given loop back around to the question.

      Or the answer is just 25%, and either A or D is correct, but not both. Thats what is meant by A Xor D. This solution assumes A, B, C, or D is true, but not more than one of them is.

    What's the answer to this?

      There's such a high likelihood of choosing an answer other than "A" it may as well be 0%. Think of the infinite number of things you could possibly say other than "A" or even other than letters at all. A randomly selected answer is practically guaranteed to be incorrect.

    It's 25% because the answer is 50% but you only have a 25% chance of picking 50%.

    It's the same paradox as trying to attribute truth value to the statement "This statement is false."

    A, C, and D can simply be dismissed as false. It can't be C because the chance of getting it is 1/4=25% contradicting it being a 50% chance, it can't be A or D because they are the same adding up to 2/4=50% chance contradicting the chance being 25%.

    The problem lies with the truth value of the answer B. If it also is false, i.e. all of the options are false, then the chance of getting the right answer on random is indeed 0% - but this would make it the correct answer. In which case there would be 25% chance of getting the answer right, making B false so the chance would be 0% which would make it the correct choice but then the chance is 25% etc. ad infinitum. Literally the same as "This statement is false" paradox.

    The other options are simply self-refuting while B is both self-refuting and self-proving in an infinite loop.
