If you choose an answer to this question at random what is the chance you will be correct?

View Results

A: 25%

B: 50%

C: 0%

D: 25%

25% is the right answer, but because there are two 25% answers the chance of giving the right answer is 50%, so you will not give the right answer so I gues the answer is 0%? XD

Friend send me this question, had to share it :)

Thanks for the giveaways!

After thinking about this for a while, I do agree that 0% should be the correct answer.

It is clear that given the options, the probability of selection of each label (A, B, C, D) is

25% for label '0%' (C)

50% for label '25%' (A, D)

25% for label '50%' (B)

0% for anything else (since there are no other options)

The interpretation of the question will be:

"If you choose an answer to this question at random, **what is the chance of this result: You have selected the label that matches the probability of you having selected that label**?"

Since none of the possible results above matches a probability with its label, it is impossible for this result to occur, so the answer is 0%.

Of course this assumes that the interpretation of the question was correct. It is possible that there exists other reasonable interpretations!

Hmmmm....👀

Is it a malfunction of the my translation device?

Or is it my lack of understanding?

Seems like a difficult puzzle game.XD...

But it's intriguing.

Yes Bao is a mancala type game, it is by far the most complex of the mancala type games. I think it is the most interesting one too.

In complexity it is closer to games like GO.

The image they show on the japanese wikipedia page is of a smaller mancala type game (much more easy and often played by children).

Bao la kiswahili is bigger and more tactical.

Todays Rusty train starts in Tanzania but first you have to find it,

There will be some dead ends, because Tanzania is not exactly a Railway empire, but a great place to Golf with your friends.

Tanzania is not a Concrete jungle or so I've heard.

I have memories of this old game I played Just recently.

I had been playing this African boardgame called Bao with a friend of mine who is originally from Tanzania. Today I saw they actually released this game on steam! Now we can play the game from a corona safe distance. Hooray!
