Yes, right @Priyansh.

The question is saying at least one side of the cube.

It means there will be 16 cubes having colors in at least one side, isn't.

Because dimensions in three different face or plane are different. That's why it is a Cuboid.

Why can't we take it as a cube?

Well, as clearly seen in the above diagram.

There are only four cubes (corner cubes) that are painted with red, green and black colors.

All the remaining cubes are painted with only two colors.
