    This is not possible because all the balls are odd numbers and sum of 3 odd nos is always odd.

    @gamma50g
    If green ball rotated by 180° the number on it
    Will be
    Six.
    That solves the problem.​

    Seemingly obvious but always out of box solution exists. Thanks for your dropping by.

    In hot summer may in Chennai a open truck daily carried potato from harvested place reached and the consignee at Koyambedu market found the total tonnage received was 5 percent less than invoiced weight. . What could be reason for 5% less? Pilferage ruled out.

    The driver stopped in a small restaurant to full his stomach. He sold the 5% potatoes to him and he promised him to serve free masala dosas for one year! My out of wild box thinking.

    Besides your super out-of-box reasoning, just brood over the key words in the question.
    They are “hot Summer” “pilferage ruled out” “ open truck” “harvested place”
    These three hint at the answer. The loss occurred during the journey. Natural cause. What it could be?
