Depends on how big the bag is, there could be an infinite number of apples that you would be counting, thus making it continuous.

hee hee!
The definition of continuous in the arena of 6S is the ability to break the data into finer and finer increments of measure…
Thus, a bag of apples is discrete.   How do you break the apple into finer and finer increments of measure?   The word “measure” is the key here…

“Do you like apples?”
You could be weighing the apples, or the bags of apples.
Apple 1 = .561 lbs
Apple 2 = .503 lbs
Apple 3 = .616 lbs
Tell me that’s not continuous…
“How do you like them apples?”
