Cubes and Dice Questions

Q:

How many dots are there on the dice face opposite the one with three dots?

A) 2 B) 4
C) 5 D) 6
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 5

Explanation:

From figures (i), (ii) and (iv), we conclude that 6, 4,1 and 2 dots appear adjacent to 3 dots. Clearly, there will be 5 dots on the face opposite the face with 3 dots.

Q:

Observe the dots on a dice (one to six dots) in the following figures. How many dots are contained on the face opposite to that containing four dots?

A) 2 B) 3
C) 6 D) Cannot be determined
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 2

Explanation:

We shall assume the dice in fig. (ii) to be rotated so that the 5 dots appear at the same position as in fig. (i) i.e. on RHS face (i.e. on face II as per activity 1) and 1 dot appears at the same position as in fig; (i) i.e. on Front face (i.e. on face I). Then, from the, two figures, 2 dots appear on the top face (i.e. on face V) and 4 dots appear on the Bottom face (i.e. on face VI).

Since, these two faces are opposite to each other, therefore, two dots are contained on the face opposite to that containing four dots.

Q:

A dice is numbered from 1 to 6 in different ways.

If 1 is adjacent to 2, 4 and 6, then which of the following statements is necessarily true?

A) 2 is opposite to 6 B) 1 is adjacent to 3
C) 3 is adjacent to 5 D) 3 is opposite to 5
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 3 is adjacent to 5

Explanation:

If 1 is adjacent to 2, 4 and 6 then either 3 or 5 lies opposite to 1. So, the numbers 3 and 5 cannot lie opposite to each other. Hence, 3 is adjacent to 5 (necessarily).

Q:

Count the number of cubes in the given figure.

A) 130 B) 132
C) 138 D) 140
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 140

Explanation:

In the figure, there are

5 columns containing 4 cubes each;

33 columns containing 3 cubes each;

9 columns containing 2 cubes each and 3 columns containing 1 cube each.

 Total Number of cubes = ( 5 x 4) + (33 x 3) + (9 x 2) + (3 x 1) = 20 + 99 + 18 + 3 = 140

Q:

Four usual dice are thrown on the ground. The total of numbers on the top faces of these four dice is 13 as the top faces showed 4, 3, 1 and 5 respectively. What is the total of the faces touching the ground?

A) 12 B) 13
C) 15 D) Cannot be determined
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 15

Explanation:

In a usual dice, the sum of the numbers on any two opposite faces is always 7. Thus, 1 is opposite 6, 2 is opposite 5 and 3 is opposite 4.

Consequently, when 4, 3, 1 and 5 are the numbers on the top faces, then 3, 4, 6 and 2 respectively are the numbers on the face touching the ground. The total of these numbers = 3 + 4 + 6 + 2 = 15.
