    Fill the 3-cup container and empty it into the 5-cup container. Now the 5-cup container would only have space for another 2 cups. Again fill the 3-cup container and pour it into the 5-cup container. You will only be able to pour 2 cups. Hence, the remainder in the 3 cup container would be 1 cup of milk.
