Apologies for late posting of the solution to this puzzle, but better late than never!
This puzzle was similar to one of the first puzzles I posted (Milkman and the Three Jars – https://alokgoyal1971.com/2013/02/03/puzzle-2-milkman-and-the-three-jars/). I received correct answers from Suman Saraf (as always!), Tanmay Ratnaparkhe and Sarthak Mitra. Well done all.
I am taking the liberty of copying the entire solution from Tanmay.
