 When Failed
Think it through and try again.
 When Completed
You know that A + 3 = 2B. Now, as 2B must be even and 3 is odd, A must also be odd.
A (odd) + B = 2C (even), so B = odd
B (odd) + D = 2A (even), so D = odd
The jar you are looking for contains an even number of sweets. As C is the only remaining possibility, it must be the answer by default.
Jar C contains six sweets.
