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 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:

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.

A) 1 B) 2
C) 3 D) 6
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 2

Explanation:

From figures (i) and (ii), it is clear that 4, 1, 3 and 6 he adjacent to 2. Therefore, 5 must lie opposite 2. Thus, if 5 is at the top, then 2 must be at the bottom.

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.

analyticalreasoning8answer121484544955.png image

The simplest triangles are AKI, AIL, EKD, LFB, DJC, DKJ, KIJ, ILJ, JLB, BJC, DHC and BCG i.e. 12 in number.
The triangles composed of two components each are AKJ, ALJ, AKL, ADJ, AJB and DBC i.e. 6 in number.
The triangles composed of the three components each are ADC and ABC i.e. 2 in number.
There is only one triangle i.e. ADB composed of four components.
Thus, there are 12 + 6 + 2 + 1 = 21 triangles in the figure.
