Does it open or close?

Device with handle is to be pushed clockwise.

Device 2 will therefore push counter-clockwise.

Device 3 will also push counter-clockwise as it is connected by taught cord to device 2.

There are 15 gears and 3 capstans, so you flunked.

Let C = clockwise, R = the reverse (counter-clockwise), and D = doesn’t matter. Then the direction of rotation of the gears and capstans starting at the top left are:      C  R  R  C  R  C  R  C  R  C  R  C  R  C  R  D  D  D

Since the 15th letter is R, the box lid opens more.
