Puzzle:
If you choose an answer to this puzzle at random, what is the probability of a correct guess?
a) 25%
b) 50%
c) 60%
d) 25%
1. Explain why the above puzzle is a paradox.
2. By introducing a single decimal point in one of the choices  can you convert this paradox into a solvable problem?
Conspicuously absent from this problem is the question being answered. All we have are three unique answers  25%, 50%, and 60%  without knowing what they represent.
Assumption 1: one of the three answers is correct.
Assumption 2: There is an equal likelihood of either of the three being correct.
Thus, the probability of selecting the correct answer through random selection of A, B, C, or D is: 33%
