# How Many Chances Would You Need To Correct The Labels?

**There are three boxes on the table.**

**One is labeled “Apples” another is labeled “Oranges”.**

**The last one is labeled “Apples and Oranges”.**

**You know that each of the box is labeled incorrectly.**

**How many Chances would you need to correct the labels?**

**Answer:**

Pick from the box labeled “Apples & Oranges”.

This box must contain either only apples or only oranges since all the labeling is wrong.

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”

So only 1 chance is needed to correct the labels.
