This is the one hundred and sixth puzzle that appears in Professor Layton and the Curious Village. To access this puzzle, you must examine the bottle on the bottom-right shelf. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine how many cups must be picked up to get the arrangement on the top row looking like the bottom row.

[edit] Hints

Hint One
    If it weren't against the rules for this puzzle, it would be easy to just switch the second and fourth glasses with each other.

    But since you can only pick up one glass at a time, that idea is right out.

Hint Two
    You have to move things around so that there is juice in every other glass. Surely there's a way to do this that doesn't involve switching the glasses themselves around.

Hint Three
    You don't need to change the positions of the actual cups. You can achieve the same goal by just moving the liquid from one cup to another.

    If you are just moving liquid, how many cups do you need to pick up to complete the puzzle?

[edit] When Failed

Nope!

Think about how many cups you really need to move to finish your task.

[edit] When Completed

That's right!

Pour the contents of the second cup into the fourth cup and then return it to its original position as shown above. This way, the task set before you can be completed in one move.

[edit] Solution

Only one cup must be picked up.

[edit] Progress

1740 Picarats and 96 Hint Coins.
