First fill 5L with 3L two times.
After filling the 5L completely 3 will contain 1 lit.
Now empty 5L and add this 1L in that.
Now fill 3L and pour it in 5L.
5L bucket now contains 4L.

first pour 5 ltr bucket water in 3 ltr bucket then 2 ltr remains in the 5 ltr bucket. Empty the 3 ltr bucket and pour that remaining 3 ltr water in it. and again fill 5 ltr bucket and pour 1 ltr water in the 3 ltr bucket which has currently 2 ltr. so in 5 ltr bucket 4 ltr is remains.

2 ans:

pour 3 ltr in 5 ltr bucket
now there is 3 ltr in 5 ltr bucket
again pour 3 ltr bucket water in 5ltr then 1 ltr remains in 3 ltr
empty the 5 ltr bucket and then pour the 1 ltr of 3 ltr bucket
now 5 ltr bucket has 1 ltr
pour 3 ltr bucket in it
Now 5 ltr bucket has 4 ltr
