On occasion of Diwali (a Hindu festival), the local ice cream seller is selling ice cream at an 80% discount. But, he got just two flavours, vanilla and cocoa-chipped. He is selling vanilla at Rs1 and Choco-chip at Rs2. However, he is giving just one ice cream to each person.

Shruti went to the shop and give the seller Rs.2 and without asking her the seller gives her Choco-chip ice cream. Next, Anmol comes and also gave the seller the same amount i.e. Rs2. Now the seller asks Anmol which ice-cream does he wants.

Shruti gave the seller 2x Rs.1 and the seller gave her Choco-chip ice cream without a question.
Anmol gave the seller 1x Rs. 2, the seller doesn't know what Anmol wants to buy hence asks Anmol which ice-cream does he want.

We are such little tiny creatures;
all of us have different features.
One of us in glass is set;
One of us you'll find in jet.
Another you may see in tin,
and the fourth is boxed within.
If the fifth you should pursue,
it can never fly from you.
What are we?
