Which cup will fill up first?
We all love riddles and train our brains, and it’s a good choice. Are you ready to wake up and face this puzzle?
Here comes the challenge. It’s not proper math, but I remember our geometry teacher gave us a similar problem back in school.
It’s quite simple, but at the same time, it can get tricky. It is important to concentrate and coordinate your brain and eyes. Now we’ll see if you can do it, and to make it fair, you only have 10 seconds.
Can you figure out which cup will fill up first in the picture?
Are you sure about your answer?
Several paths are blocked
Now check if you solved it correctly, here is the answer!
It’s NOT cup 1 that will up first because the path has a blockade at the beginning.
It is also NOT cup 2 that’ll fill up first, because the path has a blockade at the end.
And it’s NOT cup 4 that will up first either, because the path has a blockade in the middle.
Could it be that cup 3 is the only one that can fill up, and therefore, the first one to do it? The answer is yes!
It’s actually quite obvious – if you pay attention, you’ll see that it is the only cup that doesn’t have the path blocked in its associated tube.
Did you get it right?
