Good one! I was sitting here thinking, "How can I do oa probability if only one number is known?" It certainly does feel stupid out some days.

Posted by mikster67806/06/07
Nice one! I gave it to my mate and he was struggling with it so much, he didn't even hear me saying dodos are extinct! What he said the answer was, was that the rest had to be dodos, cos they live in south america! He gave me such a laugh when he read the answer!

Posted by happyhak07/09/07
That was easy! I got the answer but not the reason...I thought none but i thought none because it never said there were any dodo birds!!! :lol:

Posted by corsicanwarrah08/03/15
I think the answer should be clarified. It should go "None. Dodo birds are extinct, and even if they still existed, it isn't likely they would be kept as pets. During the time dodos existed, they weren't kept as pets anyway." :-?
