Six drinking glasses stand in a row, with the first three full of juice and the next three empty. By moving only one glass can you arrange them so empty and full glasses alternate?

    Pick up the second full glass.

    Empty it into the second empty glass.

    Return the now empty glass to its original location.

    Original Order FFFEEE

    New Order FEFEFE

    Maybe emptying the second glass to fourth will also work out
