Someone wants to take 4 liters of water, but he only has two 5-liters and 3-liters bottles. How is he able to measure 4 liters with only those bottles?

Actually I never watch Star Wars and not interested in it anyway, but I choose a Yoda card as my avatar in honor of our great friend who has passed away. May his adventurous soul rest in peace at heaven.

By the way, this thread is better in the Puzzles and Games section.

Fill 3-liter bottle and pour int 5-liter bottle. You have 3 liters of water and 2 liters of air in the 5-liter bottle. Now, fill the 3-liter bottle again and pour it into 5-liter bottle until full. That will leave 1 liter of water in the 3-liter bottle. Empty 5 liter bottle. Pour the 1 liter from the 3-liter bottle into the 5-liter bottle. Now there is 1 liter of water in the 5 liter bottle. Refill the 3-liter bottle and pour those 3 liters into the 5-liter bottle. Now you have 4 liters of water in the 5-liter bottle.
