You are in a gameshow. You were showed ten boxes. One of the boxes contains money; the rest are empty. You are then asked to select three boxes. After doing so, you are asked to choose one of the three boxes you chose. Then, one of the two boxes you didn't choose was opened and revealed empty. You are then given a chance to switch to the other box or not. What do you do?
