I'm gonna go out on a limb and say No 5 as the others have their route blocked.

I'm not convinced there's enough coffee in the jug to even get to number 5 tbh as it would have to fill the other branches first, esp the large section to the right

Well if the liquid is poured in at a faster rate than it can escape the first jug, it will over flow, and fill jugs 5 & 9. As jug 9 is closer to the first jug, it could be possible....

Exactly  8) As 9 is nearer it will fill fractionally quicker than 5.

What if the pipes are massive but far away, but the cups are small and really close.

It would take ages for number 5 to even get a drop. I'd go so far as to say that NONE of the cups will get any. There's not much coffee in that jar!

This may be a trick question as the number 9 is the same as the number 6 upside down. So I would say 20 for actual 9s and another 20 for 6s ? So 40.

Yep. That initial receptacle could be 70ft long and we're looking at the end of it. Therefore no cups receive any coffee.

When we were in Lancaster we answered the question 'how many species of snake are there native in the UK' with three, but were marked wrong as there apparently were 4. We went through this and I pointed out that a Slow worm which they were counting, is not a snake and the quiz bloke would not have it and refused to check Google when w suggested it. That combined with the discovery that the team of locals cheated on the scoring every week so they won off their mate who set the quiz led to us jacking it in.  

So yes such things are bloody irritating!

Assuming this was a while ago, then you'd have been right to feel aggrieved. Word of warning though.... the corrrect answer is 4, as recently the barred grass snake became classified as genetically distinct from the grass snake.
