There are three containers: A, B and C - each of which is irregular in its shape. There are with no marks in any of them, and only the capacity of each container is known.

Container A has a capacity of 5 liters but is empty, Container B has a capacity of 9 liters and is full of water at 26oC, Container C has a capacity of 10 liters and is full of water at 80oC.

A summarized form is provided below:
   Container A                        Container B                  

Capacity: 5 liters                Capacity: 9 liters
