Genesis 11:26

Genesis 11:26: Now Terah lived seventy years, and begot Abram, Nahor, and Haran.

Genesis 11:32: So the days of Terah were two hundred and five years, and Terah died in Haran.
Genesis 12:4: So Abram departed as the Lord had spoken to him, and Lot went with him. And Abram was seventy-five years old when he departed from Haran.
Acts 7:4: Then he came out of the land of the Chaldeans and dwelt in Haran. And from there, when his father was dead, He moved him to this land in which you now dwell.

Genesis says that Terah was 75 when he begot Abram, but Genesis and Acts together say that Terah's death at the age of 205 happened before Abraham was 75.

If Terah gave birth to Abraham at 75 and died before Abraham was 75, then his age at death was at most 150, meaning he could never been 205 years old as Genesis claims.
