    Mary's Cockle Shell Garden

    The cockle shells that grow in Mary's garden need exactly ten litres of water every day and they can be watered only once a day. She has two jugs of nine litres and eleven litres capacity respectively and a pool full of water. Can she water her cockle shells as required?

    I am not satisfied that this question is not from either a competition or graded assessment.
