Four Fruits

In a contest, four fruits (an apple, a banana, an orange, and a pear) have been placed in four closed boxes (one fruit per box). People may guess which fruit is in which box. 123 people participate in the contest. When the boxes are opened, it turns out that 43 people have guessed none of the fruits correctly, 39 people have guessed one fruit correctly, and 31 people have guessed two fruits correctly. 11 guessed all four correctly but nobody guessed 3 correctly. How come?

  • Chris

    because once you get the first 3 you instantly know the last one

  • I couldn’t have phrased it better, Chris.

    It would be impossible to get three correct because once you guess three, there is only one selection remaining for the 4th, which would also be correct. And speaking of correct …

    You’re today’s winner!!!
