You can put the first object in either of the two bags so there are two ways to put it. Similarly, there two ways to put the second object in a bag and two ways to put the third object.

So there are 2(2)(2)= 8 ways to put two objects in three bags.

The question seems a bit dubious to me. Maybe you can't tell the bags apart.

Let apple 1 be 1, apple 2 be 2 and apple 3 be 3.

Then there are (8 / 2 = 4) possibilities.
{(), (1,2,3)}
{(1), (2,3)}
{(2), (1,3)}
{(3), (1,2)}

As you can't tell the bags apart, the order doesn't matter.
