(c) Rav Ashi reinstates Abaye's explanation, establishing our Mishnah by

she'Chasru Kol-she'Hu Ve'hikrivan ba'Chutz, Patur'?

with their Eimurin ba'Chutz, is Chayav.
What problem do we have with that?
(b) Shmuel answers 'she'Hafchan'.

(c) What problem do we have with the Mishnah's latter ruling?
(a) To answer the Kashya, we cite a 'Gezeirah-Shavah'.

(d) According to which Tana then, must he be presenting the She'eilah?

only be Chayav ba'Chutz for pouring three Login?
(d) What do we mean when we ...
