Kevin -- stay with us. There is a point to each question, and I'll get around to this one.

Thanks for your interest.

Yes, and the one about the game show host is a bit of a trick question. I recall this from game theory/stats, and don't know how it would give any useful info/insight into somebody's investment acumen or other variable you might be trying to test.

The other questions were interesting, but more about somebody's depth of econ knowledge.


Gene - -Your point is well taken. The host always offers a switch.

Thanks for pointing this out.



you have misstated question 5. For it truly to produce the answer I believe you want, you need to imply that no matter what, the gameshow host will offer the switcheroo. because if he only does it sometimes, the answer is based entirely on his proclivities and not necessarily on the probability (i.e. he might only take one away and offer the switch if you guessed correctly in the first place).
