Three Orange Boxes

Three boxes, one with apples, one with oranges, one with a mix of apples and oranges, all the boxes are labeled incorrectly, you can pick up just one fruit. How do you tell which box has what fruit?

Answer : All the labels are incorrect, so pick a fruit from the box labeled mixed box. That will tell you if its the apple or orange box, because its not mixed. The other labels are also incorrect, so the box labeled with the fruit you picked will be the box containing just the other type of fruit. The remaining one will be the mixed box.The second box cant be mixed fruit box because then the third box will be labelled correct which is not the case
