Fill the 3 liter and pour it into the 5 liter. Fill the 3 liter again, pour what you can into the 5 liter and you'll be left with 1 liter in the 3 liter container. (3+3=6 6-5=1).

First, you fill up the 3 liter container and pour it into the 5 liter. Fill up the 3 liter again and pour in 2 liters in the 5 liter because that's how much can fit. Bingo, now you have one liter..

Ruve from Delaware, Age: ?
Take the 3 liter container and fill it. Pour it into the 5 liter container. Then refill the 3 liter container and pour it into the 5 liter container. The overflow is 1 liter. Point to the tabletop and say, "The milk that spilled over is yours.".
