Did you know that 80% of UCSD students could not find the error above? Repost this with the title “what’s wrong here”, and when you click “post “, the answer will be really obvious.
“Try to find the error. It’s impossible.”
I HAVE SEEN IT! :) Yes, it has an error!
The error itself isn’t within the letters, that’s just a red herring, you can find the error by looking at it in two ways (neither having anything to do with the center)
"Try to find the error. It’s impossible." is in itself a logical error, in that if it were impossible to find there couldn’t logically be an error.
or when "Try to find the error. It’s impossible." is matched with the final words "Did you know that 80% of UCSD students could not find the error above?” it implies that it isn’t impossible because 20% of UCSD students did in fact find an error negating the very definition of impossible.
This itself was never an actual study at UCSD rather the same survey (or a similar one, which in itself could be a paradox) was shown to them looking to find the logical problem. The entire purpose of this exercise is to baffle whoever is trying to solve it, but can be solved using deductive reasoning.
PS. this same exercise can be used with anything in the middle (numbers, a paragraph, picture, etc.), and has been. I had to solve a very similar problem for a modern logic class I had taken.
EDIT: I didn’t even realize the last one “Repost this with the title “what’s wrong here”, and when you click “post “, the answer will be really obvious.” which it isn’t as you can tell by all the notes with caption along the lines of “I don’t get it” the error is obviously not obvious.
