3 boxes are in a room. You know that one contains apples, one contains oranges, and one contains both apples and oranges, nut you don't know the contents of the specific boxes. The boxes are labeled, "apples," "oranges," and "apples and oranges," but each box has the wrong label on it. You must identify the contents of each box by picking one piece of fruit from only one box. You're not allowed to feel the fruit! How can you identify the contents of each box?

Please fully explain because i have no idea!
