Non Verbal Reasoning - Cubes and Dice - Discussion


Observe the dots on a dice (one to six dots) in the following figures. How many dots are contained on the face opposite to that containing four dots?

[A]. 2
[B]. 3
[C]. 6
[D]. Cannot be determined

Answer: Option A


We shall assume the dice in fig. (ii) to be rotated so that the 5 dots appear at the same position as in fig. (i) i.e. on RHS face (i.e. on face II as per activity 1) and 1 dot appears at the same position as in fig; (i) i.e. on Front face (i.e. on face I). Then, from the, two figures, 2 dots appear on the top face (i.e. on face V) and 4 dots appear on the Bottom face (i.e. on face VI).

Since, these two faces are opposite to each other, therefore, two dots are contained on the face opposite to that containing four dots.

According to me it's 6.

Sir, it would be 1, because it is a standard dice. And 5 is common in both dice and the place is also same. So opposite of 4 would be 1.

1 is also common in both the dices, uncommon no is opposite to each other therefore 2 opposite of 4. It's a general dice.

As both dice have two common sides (1&5 dots),
So the rest side should opposite to each other,
That's why the answer is 2.
