As the basket contains 8 pieces of fruits of which 3 are oranges,the probability that Jonas will get an orange is 3/8.Considering Jonas has already got an orange, as 7 fruits are left of which 3 are apple, probability that Beth will get an apple will be 3/7.Hence the probability that Jonas will get an orange and Beth will get an apple is 3/8*3/7=9/56Answer: 9/56
