Answer:

You can get total 22 chocolates.

Explanation:

1 chocolate for $1, so

A = 15 chocolates for $15.

If you return 15 wrappers, so

B = you can get 5 more chocolates (15/3).

Return 3 wrappers out of 5, so

C =  you get 1 more chocolate (3/3)

Now return 2 remaining wrappers + 1 wrapper for chocolate you got in C. So,

D = 1 Chocolate ((2+1)/3)

Total Chocolates = A + B + C + D = 15 + 5 + 1 + 1 =22
