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.

Q:

What is the number of triangles that can be formed whose vertices are the vertices of an octagon but have only one side common with that of octagon?

A) 64 B) 32
C) 24 D) 16
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 32

Explanation:

  

 

When the triangles are drawn in an octagon with vertices same as those of the octagon and having one side common to that of the octagon, the figure will appear as shown in (Fig. 1).

 

   

 

Now, we shall first consider the triangles having only one side AB common with octagon ABCDEFGH and having vertices common with the octagon (See Fig. 2).Such triangles are ABD, ABE, ABF and ABG i.e. 4 in number.

 

 

 

Similarly, the triangles having only one side BC common with the octagon and also having vertices common with the octagon are BCE, BCF, BCG and BCH (as shown in Fig. 3). i.e. There are 4 such triangles.

 

This way, we have 4 triangles for each side of the octagon. Thus, there are 8 x 4 = 32 such triangles.

      (A)

1211484628442.png image

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:

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:

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.
