@jaredj1992,
actually it says "the error in the alphabet above" so it in fact does say "in the alphabet"

@riddler,
In order for this tired, old riddle to make any sense, you need to post the whole thing as this asker has done:
Find the error. It's impossible!

Did you know that 80% of Stanford students could not find the error above?

After the list of letters, the riddle goes: "Did you know that 80% of Harvard students could not find the error above?" This line is an essential part of the riddle--if you leave it out, it makes no sense.

(Note that the name of the school varies from telling to telling.)

The error is the phrase "it's impossible," since 20% of the students DID find the error.

To summarize, this riddle has 3 parts:
1. A statement that it is impossible to find the error.
2. A list of letters, numbers, math equations, etc. which does NOT contain any errors.
3. A statement indicating that at least one person was able to find the error.

hope this helped you

@riddler,
It should read as AN ERROR & not THE error.

Explanation is that : "AN" is placed before a word that begins with a vowel.

So it should read as : did you known that 80% of Stanford students could not find AN error in the alphabet above. if you can find AN error, then Stanford has nothing on you. enjoy.

There are actually errors in the alphabet itself though, not just in the sentence, not only is the alphabet in caps, and vertical instead of horizontal, but the person left out all the commas and the 'and' between y and z.

Correct alphabet:

a b c d e f g , h i j k l m n o p , q r s , t u v , w x y and z.

Sing it for yourself and see

Did anyone realise that it said "Did you KNOWN 80% of all Stanford students DID NOT FIND THE ERROR IN THE ALPHABET ABOVE" Therefore the 80% found the error (Known) and were right. Because they didn't find the error in the alphabet, but instead they found the error in known

@riddler,
The answer is X. X is a synonym for error or mistake.

@riddler,
The answer is X. The letter X is also a synonym for the word error. Find the ERROR in the alphabet above.
