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

Answer: Option A


The fig. (X) is similar to Form IV. So, when the sheet shown in fig. (X) is folded to , form a cube, then the face bearing the dot lies opposite to the shaded face, the face bearing a circle (with '+' sign inside it) lies opposite to a blank face and the remaining two blank faces lie opposite to each other. Clearly, the cubes shown in figures (2) and (4) cannot be formed since they have the shaded face adjacent to the face bearing a dot and the cube shown in fig. (3) cannot be formed since it shows all the three blank faces adjacent to each other. Hence only the cube shown in fig. (1) can be formed.

Why not 3? The three blank faces are present side by side. So, 3 is also correct.

Yes, 3 is also correct answer.

3 is wrong. Out of the 3 blank faces, two should be opposite faces. Here all 3 blank faces are adjacent to each other.
