You have 1023 oranges and 10 bags.
You have to distribute these oranges in these 10 bags in any way you choose.
But when I ask for a certain number of oranges you have to give them in terms of bags without transferring the oranges from other bags.
How do you distribute the oranges?

You have 10 bags with 1000 coins each. In one of the bags, all coins are forgeries. A true coin weighs 1 gram; each counterfeit coin weighs 1.1 gram.
If you have an accurate scale, which you can use only once, how can you identify the bag with the forgeries? And what if you didn't know how many bags contained counterfeit coins?

There are two bottles of 10 liter; each completely filled with water. Now 2 persons having empty bottles of 4 liter and 5 liter want to take 2-2 liters of water. You can use only these 4 bottles (10 liter-full, 10 liter-full, 5 liter-empty, 4 liter-empty) to transfer the water. Wasting or throwing of water is not permitted. How can this be done?

This puzzle goes a step further from the previous one.
You have eight bags, each of them containing 48 coins. Five of those bags contain only true coins, the rest of them contain fake coins. A fake coin weighs 1 gram less than a real coin. You have an accurate scale, with the precision of up to 1 gram.
Weighing only once and using the minimum number of coins, how can you find the bags containing the fake coins?
