There are two jugs each of 4 and 3 liters respectively, without any measuring marks. How many minimum steps are required to have 2 liters of water into the 4 litre jug (the jugs can be filled any number of times with water, and they can be emptied any number of times).
Note: Here we need 2 litre water in 4 litre jug (not in any of the two jugs).
