    Hi,

    It is because THE HOT WATER "CANNOT " pour itself into those two cups. You have to use " passive voice".

    *****Someone pours the hot water into the two cups.

    Your sentence should then be :

    100 cubic centimeters of hot water (is poured) into each of the two cups.

    Note:

    1) two cupS <--------------

    2) ( is poured) is passive voice.

    3) centimeterS<------------

    :)

    Bye
