  1. Sorry there is one misprint in the Final step, when we mark the level of water in 4 lt bucket, we get 1 lt level (Not 4 lt level marking ) because 4-3=1.
    Rest remains the same.
    Thank you for you patience to read this.
    I hope this might help you.

  2. First fill the 4 lt bucket with water and then pour it in 7 lt bucket.
    Now 7-4=3 thus mark the point till where water is filled in 7 lt bucket because above that mark the water would be of 3 lt.
    Now fill the 7 lt bucket fully with water and make the 4 lt bucket empty.
    Then pour water from 7 lt bucket into 4 lt bucket such that we fill the 4 lt bucket with 3 lt water.
    We can fill the 4 lt bucket with 3 lt as we had measured the 3 lt amount in 7 lt bucket.
    Now final step – mark the level at which water is there in 4 lt bucket and by this we would get our 4 lt marking as 4-3=1.
    Now again fill the 4 lt bucket fully and empty the 7 lt bucket and pour water of 1 lt from 4 lt bucket into 7 lt bucket.
    After this again fill up the 4 lt bucket and now you would be having 4 lt water in 4 lt bucket and 1 lt water in 7 lt bucket…pour the 4 lt water from 4 lt bucket into 7 lt bucket which already has 1 lt water and thus you have 1+4=5 lt water… Congratulations
