    To begin with fill up 3 litre jug and pour it into 5 litre jug. again fill up 3 litre jug and pour it into five ltre jug as much as it can fill. now 3 litre jug has one litre water remaining in  it. Now pour all water in five litre jug back  to source. then pour one litre water from 3 litre jug.  Again fillup 3 litre jug. pour all water into 5 litre jug. Now five letre jug has four litre water in it.
