giving a bot a 25% chance of success (at 4 possible answers) is better than
hoping it doesn't crack the image?

Thanks for your reply.
I have taken this in consideration, But images take a lot of time to load
ReCaptcha images are difficult for even humans to read, also i18n in this
feature is pretty
simple using Translatewiki.net which I think will be difficult for images
About the 25%, if the attacks are too much than we can go for images, but
otherwise why trouble humans?

I think that this defeats the purpose. This would allow pre-programmed responses.
We're using QuestyCaptcha at translatewiki now because ReCaptcha got us some 10 spam accounts per day. QuestyCaptcha of course does not prevent interactive spam, but that's true for almost all captchas. Rate limiting reduces the rate at which damage is done a little more.

Neat idea, though, for the reasons you cite. I'm on a slow connection, and sometimes a CAPTCHA (off-site) holds up the entire page.
