A puzzle for the most attentive is gaining popularity online. You need to determine which cup will be filled first in the shortest possible time.

Which cup will be filled first: a puzzle with an unexpected solution

Puzzles encourage you to think outside the box to solve a problem. You should use not only logic but also creative thinking. It is important to notice hidden details and be very careful when solving puzzles.

Thus, you have only 20 seconds to determine which of the three cups will be filled first.

Hint: look at the connections that will pour tea into the different cups.

Correct answer:

If you look at cup #1, the path through which the liquid should pass is completely blocked at the beginning.

The tea will not get to cup #2 because the connection is blocked at the end.

Cup #4 will not be filled either because the path is blocked in the middle.

Thus, only cup #3 will be filled with tea.
