The missing dollar

Three people check into a hotel room. The bill is \$30 so they each pay \$10. After they go to the room, the hotel's cashier realizes that the bill should have only been \$25. So he gives \$5 to the bellhop and tells him to return the money to the guests. The bellhop notices that \$5 can't be split evenly between the three guests, so he keeps \$2 for himself and then gives the other \$3 to the guests. Now the guests, with their dollars back, have each paid \$9 for a total of \$27. And the bellhop has pocketed \$2. So there is \$27 + \$2 = \$29 accounted for. But the guests originally paid \$30. What happened to the other dollar?
This riddle is just an example of misdirection. It is actually nonsensical to add \$27 + \$2, because the \$27 that has been paid includes the \$2 the bellhop made. The correct math is to say that the guests paid \$27, and the bellhop took \$2, which, if given back to the guests, would bring them to their correct payment of \$27 - \$2 = \$25.

Mislabeled Jar Puzzle

You have 3 jars that are all mislabeled. One jar contains Apples, another contains Oranges and the third jar contains a mixture of both Apples and Oranges. You are allowed to pick as many fruits as you want from each jar to fix the labels on the jars. What is the minimum number of fruits that you have to pick and from which jars to correctly label them?
Let's take a scenario. Suppose you pick from jar labelled as Apples and Oranges and you got Apple from it. That means that jar should be Apples as it is incorrectly labelled. So it has to be Apples jar. Now the jar labelled Oranges has to be Mixed as it cannot be the Oranges jar as they are wrongly labelled and the jar labelled Apples has to be Oranges. Similar scenario applies if it's a Oranges taken out from the jar labelled as Apples and Oranges. So you need to pick just one fruit from the jar labelled as Apples and Oranges to correctly label the jars.
