Q:

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

If 1 is opposite to 5 and 2 is opposite to 3, then

A) 4 is adjacent to 3 and 6 B) 2 is adjacent to 4 and 6
C) 4 is adjacent to 5 and 6 D) 6 is adjacent to 3 and 4
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 2 is adjacent to 4 and 6

Explanation:

If 1 is opposite to 5 and 2 is opposite to 3, then 4 definitely lies opposite to 6. Therefore, 2 cannot lie opposite to any of the two numbers - 4 or 6. Hence, 2 necessarily lies adjacent to both 4 and 6.

A) Option 1,2 and 3 B) Option 1,2 and 4
C) Option 2 and 3 D) Option 2,3 and 4
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) Option 2,3 and 4

Explanation:

when a cube is formed by folding the sheet shown in fig. (A), then 22-11484628706.png image  is one of the faces of the cube and this face lies opposite to a blank face. Also, a face bearing a square lies opposite to another blank face. The remaining two blank faces lie opposite to each other. Clearly, in the cube shown in fig. (1), the face consisting of the four symbols is not the same as that formed (as shown above). Hence, the cube in fig. (1) cannot be formed

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.

Q:

Three different positions X, Y and Z of a dice are shown in the figures given below. Which number lies opposite 6?

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

Explanation:

From positions X and Y we conclude that 1, 5, 6 and 3 lie adjacent to 4. Therefore, 2 must lie opposite 4. From positions Y and Z we conclude that 4, 3, 2 and 5 lie adjacent to 6. Therefore, 1 must lie opposite 6. Thus, 2 lies opposite 4, 1 lies opposite 6 and consequently 5 lies opposite 3.

 

As analysed above, 1 lies opposite 6.
