Non Verbal Reasoning - Cubes and Dice - Discussion

The sheet of paper shown in the figure (X) given on the left hand side, in each problem, is folded to form a box. Choose from amongst the alternatives (1), (2), (3) and (4), the boxes that are similar to the box that will be formed.


Choose the box that is similar to the box formed from the given sheet of paper (X).

[A]. 2 and 3 only
[B]. 1, 3 and 4 only
[C]. 2 and 4 only
[D]. 1 and 4 only

Answer: Option B


The fig. (X) is similar to the Form V. So, when the sheet in fig. (X) is folded to form a cube, then the face bearing a dot lies opposite to one of the shaded faces. Therefore, the cube shown in fig. (2) which has both the shaded faces adjacent to the face bearing the dot, cannot be formed. Hence, the cubes shown in figures (1), (2) and (4) can be formed.

Option 1 can't possible since tow blank faces are adjacent to each other. But when we fold the cube these two blank faces will be opposite to each other.

Option 3 is false. If option 2 is false then same is applicable for 3 also. So, Answer should be 1 and 4.
