You just need to check Rs.150 box

There are 2 possible ways:
1. If it contains Rs. 100 notes, then
Current box contains Rs. 200 notes / Rs 100 box contains Rs. 150 notes / Rs. 200 box contains Rs. 100 notes.
2. If it contains Rs. 50 notes, then
Current box contains Rs. 100 notes./ Rs. 100 box contains Rs. 200 notes/ Rs. 200 box contains Rs. 150 notes.

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 labeled incorrectly. You may ask me to pick one fruit from one box which you choose.

You have three boxes filled with candies. One jar is filled with banana candies, one jar is filled with lemon candies and one jar has apple candies.. All the jars are mislabelled (i.e. all the jars have wrong labels about what kind of candies they contain).

All the candies look very similar in shape, size and color and they even smell the same. The only way to distinguish them is by tasting.

You have to eat one and only one candy to determine the correct jar labels. You can eat that one candy from any jar you want as long as you eat only one in total.

You work at a fruit factory.
There are 3 crates in front of you.
One crate contains only apples.
One crate contains only oranges.
The other crate contains both apples and oranges.
And each crate is labeled.
One reads "apples", one reads "oranges", and one reads "apples and oranges".
But the labeling machine has gone crazy and is now labeling all boxes incorrectly.
If you can only take out and look at just one of the pieces of fruit from just one of the crates,
How can you label all of the Crates correctly?
