I think it is one of those lateral thinking things 403, like have 3 in each and 1 out side, never said you have to put them all, in a cup, just, 'distribute' them.

It can be solved, just need to think outside of the box, well inside the cup in this case

You have to do it like thisCup 1: 2 Cup 2: 3Cup 3: 5place cup 2 inside cup 1 and there you have 5 coins in cup 1!Now all cups have an odd number of coins.
