Hint: In 1 dozen there are 12 cans so in 3 dozen there are 36 cans. One can hold 750ml of water then 36 cans can hold $750 \times 36ml$ of water. 1 liter= 1000ml.

Complete step-by-step answer:
1 dozen= 12
Given, a shopkeeper sold 3 dozen of which means he sold $3 \times 12 = 36$ cans
One can hold 750ml of water then
36 canes can hold =$750 \times 36ml$=$27000ml$
1 liter= 1000ml
$\therefore 27000ml = \dfrac{{27000}}{{1000}}liter = 27liter$
Shopkeeper was sold 27 liters of water .

Note: 1 dozen is equal to 12 objects and 1 liter is equal to 1000 ml these conversions must be taken care off while solving the question.
