    I don't think odds or probability applies here, because whether or not he was telling the truth is not a random event. If the host had randomly guessed B then we could work out the probability. But he knew the answer in advance (which is actually not the case in the real game show). As far as Jamal knows, it's 50/50. Either he is telling the truth or he isn't. He was down to B or D, so it was 50/50 he was lying or telling the truth. Of course there are other considerations. The host gave him the choice B before the computer had taken away the two wrong answers. No matter how you work it out, that now gives him a 25% chance of telling the truth ... as far as Jamal knows. Once the computer took away two wrong answers, that conditional probability jumped to 50% ... because Jamal knew more. The unconditional probability that he was telling the truth was 0%, because he deliberately and knowingly lied. There are other non random considerations as well. For example, Jamal knew the answer was not A. So that would change the conditional probabilities to 33% before the lifeline and 50% after. All of this is based on his conditional knowledge.
