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.

C) 40 triangles, 7 Squares D) 42 triangles, 9 Squares
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 40 triangles, 7 Squares

Explanation:

The figure may be labelled as shown 

 

 

Triangles :

 


The Simplest triangles are BGM, GHM, HAM, ABM, GIN, IJN, JHN, HGN, IKO, KLO, LJO, JIO, KDP, DEP, ELP, LKP, BCD and AFE i.e 18 in number

 

The triangles composed of two components each are ABG, BGH, GHA, HAB, HGI, GIJ, IJH, JHG, JIK, IKL, KLJ,LJI, LKD, KDE, DEL and ELK i.e 16 in number.

 

The triangles composed of four components each are BHI, GJK, ILD, AGJ, HIL and JKE i.e 6 in number.

 

Total number of triangles in the figure = 18 + 16 + 6 =40.

 

Squares :

 


The Squares composed of two components each are MGNH, NIOJ, and OKPL i.e 3 in number

 

The Squares composed of four components each are BGHA, GIJH, IKJL and KDEL i.e 4 in number

 

Total number of squares in the figure = 3 + 4 =7

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:

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.
