Periodically, I will post a problem that require some analyses to solve. If you wish to answer, Put the NUMBER of the joke before you answer.
Use your best judgement to answer! Some may be ambiguous, and some will have an answer.

#1

THE MONTY HALL PROBLEM.

Suppose you're on a game show, and you're given the choice of three doors: Behind one door is a car; behind the others, goats. You pick a door, say No. 1, and the host, who knows what's behind the doors, opens another door, say No. 3, which has a goat. He then says to you, "Do you want to pick door No. 2?" Is it to your advantage to switch your choice?

ANSWER: (It is ambiguous)

#2
MATHEMATICS

Looking at an analogue clock... How many times per day does the hands (Min and hour) make a straight line?

#1
there is no advantage to switching because no matter what there is a fifty-fifty chance the car will be behind the one you picked

4.

Can you divide numbers from 1 to 9 (1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9) into two groups so that sum of number of each group is equal.

Note : 9 cannot be turned over to make it 6.

I think you created a paradox with that one.

If there weren't two 1/4s, then this problem would actually be solvable.
