### The Logical Apples Puzzle

The Logical Apples Puzzle - 4 December

An apple seller is hosting a competition. He offers 1000 apples and 10 boxes to the people who pass by. The challenge is to put those 1000 apples in the 10 boxes in such a manner that if he asks for any amount of apples, the person is able to directly give him the boxes or a combination of boxes. If the person can do it, he promises to give a thousand apples for free.

If you happen to pass by the apple seller, will you be able to win a thousand apples?

3. The apples in the boxes will be as follows:
Box 1 = 1
Box 2 = 2
Box 3 = 4
Box 4 = 8
Box 5 = 16
Box 6 = 32
Box 7 = 64
Box 8 = 128
Box 9 = 256

Here we have taken a geometric progression to facilitate any number of apples demanded. In the last box, we will place the number of apples left:

Box 10 = 489

If you try now, you will be able to do what is asked.
