Tango,

Are you returning to this thread after I explain it?

It is no big mystery. One always goes to the shortest value note or rest, and that becomes the basis for prolation. In this case, we are faced with sixteenth notes and rests. If one uses the tried-and-true syllables for 16th notes:
One-e-and-a-Two-e-and-a||One-e-and-a-Two-e-and-a|| etc.
Then the articulation of the notes occur on e and a of the first beat of each measure.
Thus:
One - e - and - a - Two - e - and - a :||

Notes are articulated where the syllables are bold and underlined. Each note lasts for two-sixteenths (one-eighth).
