    I'm going for 50% but the chances of me being wrong is likely to be around 99% as I'm rubbish at maths.

    Since 2 of the answers are the same,doesn't that improve the chances and my guess wouldn't be on there lol

    Depends if you want the answer in terms of selecting either a or b or c or d or by selecting a percentage (25, 50 or 60)!!!

    I may be wrong but I'd say 0%

    The question is what is the chance you would be correct and there are essentially three figures to choose from, so the answer should be 33.33%. However that isn't in the list of choices, so 0%.

    My brother in law has a degree in maths. He was a maths teacher in secondary schools. I asked him an hour ago if he knew the answer and now he says he has a headache.
    Obviously. I know the answer but itís good fun watching him and the rest of you scratching your heads.

    To me and my warped sense of Maths,, it would b 35% as there is a choice of four and therefore a chance of one in four that it would be correct the fact there are two 25%'s does not change the fact that there are physically four choices but it MAY be one in three or a 50% chance so go for the 60%.
    So what is it.?????????????????

    as there is four answers i would say 25 PER CENT AS ONE ANSWER IS THERE TWICE WOULD SAY 33 AND A THIRD AS THAT IS NOT THERE THEN GO FOR 60 PER CENT AS TWO ARE THE SAME so would say that maybe at a guess not knowing what the correct question was in the first place and it still dark out there so cant see the correct answer
