  1. It is definitely 8. You see the way to cup 3 is blocked as is the way to cup 6. Since the levels of the the spouts on each cup won’t fill the cup before the water flows out of the cup and the hole in cup 7 is at the bottom it will be cup 8

  2. # 8, assuming (like Griff Nelson) that the flow of water from the faucet is slower than the water flow out of the drain lines to tanks #2 and #7, and the hole in the bottom of tank #7

  3. The 8th cup. I thought at first it was the 4th but realized that was incorrect after further details came to light. I didn’t see the blocks.

  4. It depends on the water flow. If it’s flowing so heavily that the pipe to 2 cannot drain off enough, then 1 will fill the fastest. On the other hand, if the flow is slow enough, the water will flow into 2, then to 7, and finally into 8, which would fill first. 3, 4, 5 & 6 are all blocked off, and no water can flow into them. The only way 6 could fill would be for 2 to overflow, which would make 2 full first, but, as earlier stated, if it’s flowing that heavily, 1 would fill first. So, 1 if heavy flow, 8 if a slow enough flow.
    Period.

  5. No 8 will only fill fully as 1 bottom hole is blocked so 3 4 5 cannot be filled 2 bottom hole is blocked so 6 cannot be filled and 7 has a hole in the bottom to fill 8

  6. because it will definitely fill up faster than 7 and nothing will get through to 4 and 6 because of that wall in the middle of the pipe blocking all the water

  7. 6 : 3+4+5 ARE BLOCKED / 6 WILL FILL BEFORE SEVEN DUE TO LOWER OUTLET ON 2 / OPEN BOTTOM ON SEVEN TO 8 WILL ONLY COME INTO PLAY WHEN 2 FILLS HIGHER THAN OUTLET TO 6

  8. No tank will be filled.tap goes to tank 2 and 6 is bloked.tank 7 has hole at bottom.so no tank will be fully filler
