Reach into the basket marked "mixed" - you know that one is either apples or oranges because all baskets are mislabeld. Whatever fruit you pull out, that is the fruit in that basket, so label it correctly.

Since there are only two left, just switch the labels between the two. You know they are wrong and don't need to reach into them.
