you are given four different jars of 2 litres, 4 litres, 6 litres and 8 litres respectively with an unlimited water supply.
Then you are asked to measure exactly 5 liters of water using them.

How will you do it? posted Feb 16, 2016

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 ... answer Feb 16, 2016
so ders no answer to this question?

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. answer Nov 10, 2016
