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 A


The fig. (X) is similar to the Form II. So, when the sheet shown in fig. (X) is folded to form a cube then the two half-shaded faces lie opposite to each other, the face bearing a square lies opposite to one of the two blank faces and the face bearing a circle lies opposite to the other blank face. Therefore, the cubes shown in figures (2) and (3) which have the two half-shaded faces adjacent to each other, cannot be formed by folding the sheet shown in fig. (X). Also, though the cube shown in fig. (4) 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 the cube in fig. (4). Hence, only the cube in fig. (1) can be formed.

I can't understand, how to fold that one into a cube? Please, anyone explain it.

Please explain why not 4? I'm not getting clearly. So please friends.

When Square side faces you, the shaded region will be in horizontal and in option 4 the region shaded is vertical so it is not true.

I think it's both 1 and 4 is the answer.

It is not clearly showing that how it will be 1 except 4. Why not 4?

The stripes of (1) pointing from left to top instead of left to bottom.

When you form a cube, from the fig X, the two shaded sides are opposite. So, you may think that both 1 and 4 can be the answer. But when you form the cube, the shaded portions have a different pattern. As pointed by Kashmira, horizontal and vertical.

So when you form the cube option 4 cannot be obtained.

I am confused between 1 and 4. Please, someone explain.

Yes, right @Kashmira.

4 is correct in 1 pattern doesn't match.

Banubala said: (Apr 6, 2019)  
The correct answer is 1.

4 will not come because the vertical shading will be on the next half of the face not close to the square face.
