    A has a value with a probability of 25 % to be chosen, so it's correct. B and C both have both have a value that has a chance of 50 % to be chosen, so they're correct, too. But that would render the chance to be correct overall at 75 % and according to the problem's formulation, none of them would be correct. But if none of them is correct, then the way we arrived at the correctness of the individual values isn't valid, as it doesn't address the problem.Dawnstorm

    Good point.

    I think you just can't admit that you were wrong.Jeremiah

    That is not philosophy, not by a long shot and if that is the standard that passes on these forums, then I have to question if I belong here at all.Jeremiah

    Because my arumgent is sound, besides I hate it when everyone sits around agreeing with each other, it is incredibly unproductive.Jeremiah
