Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1"all of the labels are on the wrong box" is a very important information! no, you can't choose....thats why it depends on what you get from the 3rd box

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1again, its not asked what will you get from the 3rd box. depending on what you get (which is not in your control), you will label the boxes as i explained in the previous comments.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1let me elaborate my thought process, we know all boxes have wrong labels, so box 3 definitely has either both indoor or both outdoor basketballs. seeing box 3, we will confirm whether it has 2 indoor or 2 outdoor basketballs. case 1: we see indoor basketball, so correct label for box 3 is "2 indoor basketballs" ....to be continued

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but it says that box 3 is labeled as one indoor basketball and one outdoor basketball..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1"but it says that box 3 is labeled as one indoor basketball and one outdoor basketball" thats why we can say that box 3 definitely has either both indoor or both outdoor basketballs ...continued now box1 is also incorrectly labelled, if I label box1 as "1 indoor and 1 outdoor basketball" then box2 will remain as "2 outdoor basketball" which is incorrect, given "all boxes have wrong labels" hence I MUST label box1 as "2 outdoor basketballs" and what remains is box2 with label "1 indoor and 1 outdoor basketball" this is the most important part, try to understand it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so then that means that the correct label for the third box is 2 indoor basketballs?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1lol same question again! we would know what the correct label for the 3rd box is, only after we see one basketball from that box. if its a indoor basketball, the correct label for 3rd box is "2 indoor basketballs" if its a outdoor basketball, the correct label for 3rd box is "2 outdoor basketballs"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1A. From which box would you choose to see a basketball in order to be able to label all the boxes correctly? Answer : From box 3.  B. What is the correct label for the first, second, and third box? Answer: If we saw an indoor basketball from box 3, then Label for box 1 : 2 Outdoor basketball Label for box 2: 1 Indoor and one Outdoor basketball Label for box 3: 2 Indoor basketball But if we saw an outdoor basketball from box 3, then Label for box 1 : 1 Indoor and one Outdoor basketball Label for box 2: 2 Indoor basketball Label for box 3: 2 Outdoor basketball  ^^ that should be your answer
