Cubes and Dice Questions

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:

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:

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:

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:

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.

Q:

Two positions of a block are shown below: When six is at the bottom, what number will be at the top?

A) 1 B) 2
C) 4 D) 5
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 5

Explanation:

From figures (i) and (ii) we conclude that the number 1, 2, 3 and 4 appear adjacent to 6. Thus, the number 5 will appear opposite 6. Therefore, when six is at the bottom, then 5 will be at the top.

Q:

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

If 1 is adjacent to 2, 3 and 5, then which of the following statements is necessarily true?

A) 4 is adjacent to 6 B) 2 is adjacent to 5
C) 1 is adjacent to 6 D) 1 is adjacent to 4
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 4 is adjacent to 6

Explanation:

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

Q:

A cube has six different symbols drawn over its six faces. The symbols are dot, circle, triangle, square, cross and arrow. Three different positions of the cube are shown in figures X, Y, and Z.

Which symbol is opposite the dot?

A) Circle B) Triangle
C) Arrow D) Cross
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) Cross

Explanation:

From figures X and Y, we conclude that dot, circle, square and cross lie adjacent to the triangle. Therefore, the arrow must lie opposite the triangle. From figures X and Z, we conclude that dot, triangle, arrow and cross lie adjacent to the circle. Therefore, the square must lie opposite the circle. Thus, the arrow lies opposite the triangle, the square lies opposite the circle and consequently, the cross lies opposite the dot.

 

As analysed above, the cross lies opposite the dot.
