    1. The people who quessed three fruits correctly are 0. The riddler is speaking in manner of "EXACTLY N FRUITS" and not "AT LEAST N FRUITS", otherwise wont be correct to point that 1 Fruit guys are more than 2 Fruit guys and also the calculation will look different. As for the 4 Fruit guys... its ok. So answer is 0, 10

  2. 123 - 43 + 39 + 31 = 10

    Guessing three right would be the same as guessing four right since if you know three then you obviously know what's in the fourth box since its not one of the other three.

    So ten guessed three or all four.

  3. As said previously the number for 3/4 sum to 10 but since nobody would have 3 right 10 must have 4.

    If you have 3 right you also have 4 right

  6. 123
    43 + 39 + 31 from 123 leaves 10

    Guessing three right would be the same as guessing four right since if you know three then you obviously know what's in the fourth box since its not one of the other three. So, unless the guesser died at the moment he got three right, all guessers who got three rigth went on to correctly guess the fourth

    So ten guessed all four, and none stopped after guessing three right.

  8. you fucking kidding me i looked at the question for 6 seconds and solved it how is this unsolvable
    so
    123 people
    43 no fruits
    39 1 fruit
    31 2
    00 3
    10 4
    43+39+31=113
    so 10 people guessed 3 fruits and all fruit
    but how many did each well
    there are 24 possible different guesses they could do
    and out of those 24 there are 0 possible ways to get just 3 correct cause if one is incorrect another is automatically in correct so 0 got 3 correct
