Did you try to solve it yourself? Well, the answer is quite simple but needs a little bit of observation there.

If you pay closer attention, you will see that pipes 4, 9 and 7 are actually closed. You might easily notice that pipe 7 is blocked and the same goes to pipe 4. Then the cup 9 seemed like it will get the coffee first because of the short distance between coffee and the cup, but later you will realize that the end of pipe 9 is closed to.

So the answer is only cup 5 will get filled with coffee!

Did you guess it right? You can now go ahead and enjoy your cuppa!
