You have only two left.

You probably have the (3) that you took away. It didn't say, "How many are left?" So I would say that you have 3 apples.

If YOU take 3 apples from the original 5. You will leave two apples behind and You will have 3 apples. The question asks how many do you have, not how many are left behind. Its a trick on words.
