"It is interesting to note that when people are suggesting questions for Pentransum they also have to provide five possible answers. It could be assumed that with a free choice of how these answers are arranged, the correct answer would be equally likely to be assigned to each of the letters A to E. This is not the case however. It appears that people are roughly twice as likely to choose the middle answer (C) rather than either of the outside answers (A or E). Here is a breakdown of the choices as read from the database.
