Today’s challenge: Which cup will fill up first?

Many of you are probably enjoying the sun when you read these lines, chilling down on the couch, sitting on the bus on the way home or taking it easy in bed. I’m sure, very important things. No problem – but what if you’re taking a short break to train the most important thing we’ve got?

Our brain!

Today, we wish to invite you to our day’s challenge! Both fun and useful at the same time!
We’ve shared lots of various puzzles before. From finding a certain letter within a sea of numbers, to figuring out how many triangles a picture contains.

Which cup will fill up first?

All these types of brainteasers are fantastic for us–and from time to time it’s certainly useful to sit down and do similar puzzles.
That is why I am here today, I wanted to share with you a new one!
It’s pretty simple but it can get tricky at the same time. Concentrating and organizing the brain and the eyes is critical. Now we’ll see if you can do it, and just have 10 seconds to make it fair.

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.
