so the person has to get take them across one by one. so he takes the lamb first deposits it to the other side, then takes the bundle of grass takes it to the other side, then takes the lamb with him and puts it back where it was first and takes the lion instead and takes it to the other side and then goes back for the lamb and takes it to the other side.
