Odd Interview Questions/Brain Teasers

I just ran across this article  published by CNN Money titled "The most ridiculous job interview questions" (http://goo.gl/6vxb7).  All I will say is I am sure the interviewee gets a good kick out of the answers for some of these questions.  However, in reading through them here are a few of my favorite brain teasers, can you figure them out?

"You have a bouquet of flowers. All but two are roses, all but two are daisies, and all but two are tulips. How many flowers do you have?" — Epic Systems

"You have three boxes. One contains only apples, one contains only oranges, and one contains both apples and oranges. The boxes have been incorrectly labeled so that no label accurately identifies the contents of any of the boxes. Opening just one box, and without looking inside, you take out one piece of fruit. By looking at the fruit, how can you immediately label all of the boxes correctly?" — Apple

"You have five bottles of pills. One bottle has 9 gram pills, the others have 10 gram pills. You have a scale that can be used only once. How can you find out which bottle contains the 9 gram pills?" –eBay
