Absurd Answers

Here are three answers:

1. Answer A
2. Answer A or B
3. Answer B or C

The Question: There is only one correct answer to this question. Which answer is this?


Answer: If answer A would be correct, then answer B ("Answer A or B") would also be correct. If answer B would be correct, then answer C ("Answer B or C") would also be correct. This leads to the conclusion that if either answer A or answer B would be the correct answer, there are at least two correct answers. This contradicts with the statement that "there is only one correct answer to this question". If answer C would be correct, then there are no contradictions.

So the solution is: answer C.
