1. Really stupid quiz. 2. I stopped trying about 1/2 way through. 3. I did quite well. 4. It's still a really stupid quiz.

5cats, you're trolling me now right?

Google it, read, or even better go do the card experiment, see for yourself! It works that way!

@tiredofnicks: that site makes the problem very clear (good!) but it's still wrong.

Is this a troll site? Your "logic" is just plain wrong.

"The prize did not move, so each door, and the contestant, keep the one-third chance of being correct."

Incorrect: odds = good prize/# of doors. With one door gone the odds have changed from 1/3 to 1/2.

"It treats the situation as if the contestant had not made the first choice at all."
Correct: The "first choice" has nothing to do with the odds of the SECOND round. That is the `Gamblers Fallacy`, ok?
In the second round there are 2 doors and one prize, period. The first round is irrelevant.

I posted that there because this is the truth.

14/20 with way too much guessing. Though I did get the last one right by guessing what the question was.

5Cats: It is completely counter-intuitive and was a major controversy when it was first suggested but it actually checks out and has been proven in multiple ways. You can even try it out for yourself with a deck of cards.

Here's also logical proof that it actually works.
