I dont think it can be solved as 5 is a odd number and all the given jars are even number. Any + or - between two even numbers produces only even so it cant be solved.

Any crazy person who can solve it ...

If we have to measure precisely, it is impossible. Because we are asked to measure odd number of liters whereas all the jars we have can contain only even liters of water.

Arrange all the digits 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 to give four different square numbers. (You make a square number when you multiply something by itself, so 49 is square because it is 7 times 7)
