    None of the cups hold the ball. The table does that. The cups only conceal the ball. 🙄😴🙄😴🙄😴

    It doesn't matter, you moved it with a sneaky magician trick anyway.
    But the answer to your question, considering the wording of the
    sentence, is Yes.

    I'll vote "a" too.

    That's 2 of 2 votes for "a". By democratic regulations the ball should be under cup "a" until a majority votes otherwise :p

    I beg celticcountry not to post the rest of this, it'll just turn into a gigantic argument among those that know what they are on about and everyone else. It'll never end as as everyone knows there is an almost limitless source of people who don't know math.

    Then I assume this puzzle has been posted elsewhere...can I at least get a link to it to satisfy my now enormous curiosity? Thanks.
