FIND THE CORRECT LABELL

821.1K Views

There are three boxes. One is labeled “APPLES” another is labeled “ORANGES”. The last one is labeled “APPLES AND ORANGES”. You know that each is labeled incorrectly. You may ask me to pick one fruit from one box which you choose.

How can you label the boxes correctly?

    Pick from the one labeled “Apples & Oranges”. This box must contain either only apples or only oranges.

    E.g. if you find an Orange, label the box Orange, then change the Oranges box to Apples, and the Apples box to “Apples & Oranges.”
