PUZZLE: You have three jugs. They can hold 12 liters, 8 liters, and 5 liters of milk or say water respectively. 12-liter jug is full of milk, but you need to split it in half using only the jugs on hand.

**How can you split up the water to give away exactly 6 liter, and keep 6 liter?**

**Solution:**

**Steps and description**

Fill 8 liter jug with milk from 12 liter jug and pour it into 5 liter Jug. (Now, 8 liter jug contains 3 liters milk.)

Empty 5 liter jug pouring milk back to 12 liter jug back and fill 3 liter milk from 8 liter jug into it.

At this point – 8 liter jag is empty. 5 liter jug contains 3 liters milk.

Now, fill 8 liter jug with milk from 12 liter jug again.

Pour it into 5 liter jug. Since 5 liter jug already contains 3 liter, so, it will accommodate more 2 liters milk from 8 liter jug.

At this point – 8 liter jag contains 6 liters milk and 5 liter jug contains 5 liters milk.

Empty 5 liter jug pouring milk back to 12 liter jug back.

At this point – 8 liter jag contains 6 liters and 12 liter Jug contains 6 liters milk.

**This is the answer we want – 12 liter Jug contains 6 liters milk only.**
