yet two list 25% as an option, therefore the right answer statistically (2/4) should be 50%. But of course with 50% being one of the options but with 3 other possible answers we're right back where we started from with 2 possible choices of 25%. The question is a complete logic ****.

No matter which answer you pick.
This assumes that the instructor is, indeed, grading the question.

True, but we're arguing which one should be correct, not that the instructor would mark one as correct.

I'm willing to bet that's the whole point of the question and the instructor is hoping at least one student will write some kind of angry tirade about it on the paper so he can hold that student up as an example of someone who "gets it" and deny points to everyone else in the class.
