You want to make a sugar-water solution to put in your hummingbird feeder. You find some sugar cubes and were about to drop them into a glass of water, when your sibling suggests crushing the cubes before mixing. Is this a good suggestion?

Yes, it is a good suggestion.
Crushing the sugar cubes increases the surface area of sugar that is exposed to the water. This will allow the sugar to dissolve more easily and more rapidly.
