    if you find that its a outdoor basketball, then label the 2nd box as 2 indoor baskeballs, label the 3rd box as 2 outdoor basketballs, and label the 1st box as 1 indoor and one outdoor basketballs.

    " it a indoor basketball or a outdoor" what is? you are not asked which basket ball you chose ... you are asked which box would you see to choose a basketball. and its the 3rd box.

    when you chose to see one basketball from 3rd box. it could be indoor or outdoor and depending on that you will change the labels :)

    "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

    again, 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.

    let 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

    "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

    so then that means that the correct label for the third box is 2 indoor basketballs?

    lol 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"

    A. 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
