The post quickly went viral, being shared and liked thousands of times. But it has proven confusing, leaving most of Twitter absolutely stumped. Can you figure out which cup would be filled up first?

Take a look at the puzzle here:

Many guessed that the coffee would reach all four cups at the same time, however the original poster encouraged them to try again and look harder.

The Answer

Cup five receives the coffee first, and is in fact the only mug that gets any coffee at all. All of the other pipes are blocked off before they reach the other cups.

Did you get it right? Give yourself a pat on the back!
