    Why «hvem spiser eplene opp?» is not good answer?


    because "å spise opp" are two parts of one action. å spise means you eat, å spise opp means you eat until something is empty. (most commonly about finishing your plate, but also about eating everything available until there is nothing left at all. might be this "compound verb" thingy i've seen others talk about.
