But there is. It asks about the odds of guessing correctly.There's no criterion for correctness, so there's no possible answer. — StreetlightX
I agree, and the consistency of this makes it not a paradox. Choice C should probably have been 0% instead of 60%. Then it would be a paradox I think.Therefore, the correct answer is 0% which is correct because it is not a choice on offer. — unenlightened

Of course it is circular. Perhaps there is a paradox that is not, but I cannot think of one offhand.The problem as I see is that the outcome changes the solution and I not sure if I would consider that truly circular. — Jeremiah
If none of the choices is correct, then the correct answer is simply not among the choices. 0% is the answer since it cannot be chosen. This itself is not paradoxical. Hence my comment that (C) should have been 0%, not 60. That forces the paradox.0% is not a possible outcome, which means there is a 0% chance of it being 0%. — Jeremiah
????There is only one purposed chance event. It does not loop back on itself, it is not a circle and, as long as you don't say C), then you are not wrong until after the chance event, only then can you be wrong. — Jeremiah
How many letters does the correct answer have?
