Lift the second bucket, pour its contents into the fifth bucket, then return the second bucket.

Pour the contents of Bucket 2 into Bucket 5, and replace Bucket 2 in its original position, yielding:

1F 2E 3F 4E 5F 6E

This is too simple. Take the second full bucket and empty it into the second-to-last bucket. Then put the now-empty bucket back to where it was.

take 2 and empty it in 5 then bring it back where it was:

FFFEEE——–>FEFEFE

Cool man!, empty the second in the fifth and moving it back to its original position is the correct answer, at least is one of the possibles correct answers, nice!
