First, number each of the basket from 1 to 10.

Then take 1 apple from first basket and put into the empty basket. Then 2 apples from second basket, 3 from third and so on till 10 apples are taken from the tenth basket and put into the earlier empty basket.

So total number of apples in the basket now is 55.

Now, if the 5 ounce apple was from the first basket, then total weight of the basket would be (54 X 4) + 5 = 221 ounce.

If 5 ounce apple was from the,

2nd basket, weight of basket = 222 ounce

3rd basket, weight of basket = 223 ounce

4th basket, weight of basket = 224 ounce

5th basket, weight of basket = 225 ounce

6th basket, weight of basket = 226 ounce

7th basket, weight of basket = 227 ounce

8th basket, weight of basket = 228 ounce

9th basket, weight of basket = 229 ounce
