Hello VariollaWhat's with the 'human flora' link? I do hope that wasn't a reference to me needing to change my deodorant!I'm thinking about the three boxes puzzle. I'll have the answer in a jiffy. Possibly.
Right. The box marked 'apples and pears' must have just one variety, so whatever comes out of that box is what it contains.If the two fruits pulled from the other boxes are both the same I don't know how to tell which box is mixed.I've got half of it. I'll think some more.
Hang on. I'm having an Alzheimer moment!
Right, it's easy.One box is marked 'bananas and grapes' and contains just grapes. So there's only two options left. The box that is marked 'grapes' must therefore be the only other option, 'mixed'. And the last box has to be the coconuts, cos that's all that's left. Yes?
No, hang on. If the box marked 'apples and pears' contained oranges I would label it 'oranges'. So far, so good.But why change the 'oranges' box to 'apples'? How do you know it's not mixed? Especially if you can pull an apple out of either.
It's nearly midnight. Maybe this will seem obvious in the morning. But when the likes of BenV come on line and see the mess we've made of this puzzle I will have to commit hari kari. [xx(]
Here you go John,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 box labeled incorrectly. You may ask me to pick one fruit from one box.How can you label all the boxes correctly?
