Answer

The pipes are inelastic.

Work Step by Step

We know from Kirchhoff's Law that the inward and outward rate of a current in a junction or node should be the same. From this, we find that the inward and outward fluid flow rates must be the same. From the fact that the current flow rate is the same everywhere within the pipes, it follows that the pipes are inelastic.
