Assume that published books are classified as novels, short stories, or story books according to the following classification:

In front of you are 3 chests:

Chest A has been labelled with "*100 gold coins*,"

Chest B has been labelled with "*50 gold and 50 silver coins*," and

Chest C has been labelled with "*100 silver coins*."

You are told that **all of the labels are incorrectly placed,** as they describe the contents of another one of the chests. To help you determine which is the chest that contains 100 gold coins, you are allowed to pick a random coin from a chest of your choice.

Which chest should you pick a coin from?

Note: The picking of a single coin is just a sample to figure out where the 100 gold coins are; the coin you pick does not necessarily need to be from the chest of 100 gold coins.
