    Number 4 is pear trees. It's just a play on words.

    okay! My brother and I have concluded that Tom must pull a fruit from the box labeled mixed fruit. It will have to be a single fruit of whatever he pulled out.

    The labels can then be switched on the remaining boxes since none of them are labeled correctly.

    That might work but only if the pears were heavier than the apples and since we do not know what type of apples or pears are in the boxes it would be a risky strategy, as well as labor intensive. Remember all the boxes are labeled incorrectly.

    "I would pick them all up
    The heaviest one would be the pear box
    the second heaviest would be the mix
    the lightest would be pure apple
    on average pears weigh .2 oz more then apples
    sometimes they are almost twice as heavy"

    I don't know if it's cheating, but I asked my brother and this was his answer.

    Apples and Pears!

    Tom has three boxes with fruits in his barn: one box with apples, one box with pears, and one box with both apples and pears. The boxes have labels that describe the contents, but none of these labels is on the right box.

    How can Tom, by taking only one piece of fruit from one box, determine what each of the boxes contains?

    Correct on #5 Angelgurl. I think you need some harder ones.

    You are both right on number 1! And Angelgurl is right with number 2 (although I would accept the US National Debt as an answer as well).

    the answer to 3 is neither. 9+5=14
