  1. Hi there, thanks for asking.
    Greetings from team Kailasha Foundation.
    If I have clearly got your question, 50% of the remaining water is taken out every hour. Then, the question answers itself.
    AS YOU NEVER TAKE OUT COMPLETE WATER, but ONLY 50% of the remaining, how can the bucket be completely empty?

    Get back to me if did not understood clearly.

    Other perspective of the question:
    If 50% of the capacity of complete bucket is emptied every hour, then it is a Std. III question. Obviously, 2 hours in 100% empty bucket.


    Happy Learning.
