Why 50% ?

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

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.

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)

$\frac{2}{4} \times 100 = 50$ % probability.

There are 2 instances of the option 25%, so if 25% is correct, you will haveLog in to reply
