Solve the Crate Puzzle

Steps to the Answer:

Pick a fruit from the crate marked Apples and Oranges.

If that fruit is an apple, you know that the crate should be labeled Apples because all of the labels are incorrect as they are.

Therefore, you know the crate marked Apples must be Oranges (if it were labeled Apples and Oranges, the Oranges crate would be labeled correctly, and we know it isn’t),

And the one marked Oranges must be Apples and Oranges.

Alternately, if you picked an orange from the crate marked Apples and Oranges, you know that crate should be marked Oranges, the one marked Oranges must be Apples, and the one marked Apples must be Apples and Oranges.
