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]. 2 only
[C]. 3 only
[D]. 4 only

Answer: Option B


The fig. (X) is similar to the Form III. So, when the sheet in fig. (X) is folded to form a cube, then the half-shaded face appears opposite to the face bearing a rhombus, the face with a black circle appears opposite to one of the two blank faces and the face with a '+' sign appears opposite to the other blank face. Clearly, the cubes shown in figures (1) and (4) cannot be formed since they have the half-shaded face adjacent to the face bearing the rhombus. Also, though the cube shown in fig. (3) has faces that can appear adjacent to each other but the cube formed by folding the sheet in fig. (X) cannot be rotated to form fig. (3). Hence, the cube in fig. (3) cannot be formed. Thus, only the cube shown in fig. (2) can be formed.

How I will find if the rotation can provide given solution or not?

I think both 2 and 3 is correct.

The answer is only (2).

(3) can't be the answer because the dark triangle is not touching the face having dark point.

The answer is only (2) is definitely correct.

Vivek said: (Feb 6, 2021)  
Yes, 2 is the correct answer.

3 cannot be the answer because the base of the triangle should lie adjacent to plus sign not the circle.
