In the movie Die Hard: With a Vengeance, our heroes, John McClain (Bruce Willis) and Zeus (Samuel L. Jackson), are trying to save the city from the madness of Peter Krieg (Jeremy Irons), a psychopath who calls himself Simon, detonating bombs all over New York City. First, they are sent to the payphone, then to the subway, and finally to the park.

NYPD officer John McClain and shop owner Zeus Carver are in quite the predicament. McClain and Zeus find another bomb in Central Park, and to disarm it they need to solve Simon’s riddle.

The bomb is in a briefcase with a precise electronic scale. McClain and Zeus have a 5-Liter jug and a 3-liter jug. They are standing next to a fountain where they can take as much water as they want. They have 5 minutes to put one of the jugs on the scale with exactly 4 liters of water in it, or the bomb will detonate.
