You have to count the no.of cubes with 2 faces painted red and 1 with Green. Rest all faces will be uncolored.

So, if you look carefully the first half can never meet this condition as red is present @ the opposite faces (2 faces red is not possible) whereas if you look at the other half, there are 4 (2+2) such cubes at the corners of one diagonal.

In question you mentioned for second cube (while the other is coloured green on two smaller adjacent faces and red on the remaining), the question says on the two small adjacent and you guys coloured only one small adjacent with green which makes the answer 4 cubes. The real answer related to the question not the drawing cubes is 8 cubes.
