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

Answer: Option D


The fig. (X) is similar to the Form VII. So, when a cube is formed by folding the sheet shown in fig. (X), then 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.

Actually only figure 4 is possible, if you take the orientation of the black D symbols into consideration.

All figures are possible.

Only 4 is possible becasue 1, 2 and 3 give a wrong combinatin of the 4 small faces.
