25 % . Because there are four options each contributing 25 %

@Mayank Holmes I guess these sort of questions are good for discussions rather for finding answers. For any answer there is a contradictory statement ......:) how about considering both 25% into single unit and the remaining 0 and 50 we get one more combination 1/3*100

@Santosh Kumar They are not one unit.. They are different options and the question is about choosing one option randomly...

50%

Rishabh Singhal - 4 years, 4 months ago

0% is the correct answer .............. if it would have been 25% then if we chose randomly, there are 2 choices out of a total of four , that seem optimal ( i.e. option(a and (d ) so that would mean that the probability would be equal to 50 % ........ Contradictory! if it would have been 50% , then it would have meant that only one choice out of the four is correct i.e. 25%... this answer is also contradictory to itself.......... if it would have been 0% then again it would imply that one choice out of the four is correct i.e. 25% ...... hence it seems that none of the option is correct ......... that leads us to the answer 0% , and hence this answer is not in contrary to itself!!!!!!!

If 0% is correct, then it is one of the four options, which would give you 25% probability again.

Muzaffar Ahmed - 4 years, 4 months ago

Agree. Can't be zero percent.If one of the options is correct and the user selects it randomly it definitely will have a probability. I will still stick to 25% . because among 4 options only one is correct and the probability for that becomes 25%(1/4 multiloed by 100)

Santosh Kumar - 4 years, 4 months ago

Log in to reply

@Santosh Kumar There are 2 instances of the option 25%, so if 25% is correct, you will have \( \frac{2}{4} \times 100 = 50\) % probability.

@Muzaffar Ahmed Oop missed it didn't notice 25 repeating again
