8 coins
or 0 coins, depending on how you define "has"
9. NOT 8.

incorrect.

the mud monster wouldnt ahve any coins himself, coz he has emptied the sack. the coins have fallen. he does not actually have them.

HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

HE HAS ZERO COINS!

if it said "how many coins does the mud monster now have in his sack after he picked up the 5 coins", the answer wud hav been 8.

but you didn't say "how many coins does he have after he empties his sack", you said "when he empties his sack". and when he empties it, he has 8 coins.
