1- fashionable

Are my answers correct?
1 - Yes
2 - Both "The apples" and "Apples" are possible.
3 - Yes

b) Find the mistakes in the following sentences:

1- We have two litres of oil. – Those is enough.

2- If you started now, it takes you three days to finish.

1- We have two litres of oil. – This is enough.
I would use "That is enough" but your answer is acceptable.

2- If you started now, it would take you three days to finish.
Yes. More commonly, you hear "If you start now, it will take you three days to finish".

c) Rewrite the following sentence using the word in brackets:

1. Eating the right food makes you healthy. (If)

1- If you eat the right food, you become healthy.
Yours is OK but I find "If you eat the right food, you will become healthy" more natural.

Is it okay if I say: 'Those are enough'?
It is not colloquial. Take ems's advice.
