It looks easier than it is. The options are presented beautifully to cause maximum mental confusion.
As my dad put it, the answer depends on the answer. If the answer is 60%, it’s 25%. If the answer is 25% it’s 50%. If the answer is 50% it’s 25%. There’s an endless loop with no correct answer.

Yes, I photoshopped this. I’m either cheating or engaging in outside-the-box thinking. Sometimes it’s tough to tell the difference.
My preferred set of answers would be:
- A) 25%
- B) 50%
- C) 75%
- D) 50%
Though I’m tempted to throw a “0%” in for good measure…
