1. Initially
A – 0, B – 0, c -5, D – 5

Pour C into B
A – 0, B – 4, C – 1, D – 5

Pour C into B
A – 0, B – 4, C – 1, D – 5

Pour half of B into C
A – 0, B – 2, C – 3, D – 5

Pour D into A
A – 3, B – 2, C – 3, D – 2

Pour A into B
A – 1, B – 4, C – 3, D – 2

Pour half of B into D
A – 1, B – 2, C – 3, D – 4

2. initially
A-0,B-0,C-5,D-5

pour 4litres of water from D to A
then A-4,B-0,C-5,D-1

pour 3litres of water from C to B
then A-4,B-3,C-2,D-1

the water jug is filled with water in descending order as A-4,B-3,C-2,D-1

1. A can only hold 3 liters, so it has to be in descending order.

3. Initially,
A=0/3 B=0/4 C=5/5 D=5/5

Pour C into A and pour the leftovers into B to get
A=3/3 B=2/4 C=0/5 D=5/5

Now just pour A into C and you are done:
A=0/3 B=2/4 C=3/5 D=5/5
