This is actually a paradoxical question, often known as the "two envelopes" or "prediction paradox". Here's why: If we assume that the answer options are equiprobable (each has an equal chance of being picked at random), then the chance of picking any given answer would be 25%. However, two options state that the answer is 25%, which could make you think that there's a 50% chance of correctly guessing (since there are two 25% options). But then, if the chance is indeed 50%, the correct answer should be 50%, but there's only one option indicating 50%, which means that if you select at random, there's only a 25% chance of getting 50%. So the answer continually flips between 25% and 50%, which makes the question paradoxical. Therefore, it doesn't have a definitive, logical answer.
