In two different positions of dice, 3 at same position and the dice has rotated in clockwise direction, all visible numbers are adjacent to the 3, the invisible number will be the opposite to number 5.

Simple, if dice is rotates clockwise or anticlockwise without changing the top position. (Here is --- 3).

Please, explain clearly I can't understand why it's C not A.

Sumit said: (Jan 5, 2017)  
The answer should be B 2 because this dice is standard dice and the sum of opposite face should be 7 in standard dice so 7-5 = 2.

Tell me, where I am wrong.

Anil said: (Jan 14, 2017)  
I think the question is framed wrongly as it is a standard die 5 have to be opposite 2 not 6.

Venkatesh said: (Jan 16, 2017)  
Answer is B why beacuse it is general dice. General dice rule is each opposite addition becames 7.

So, 1+6 = 7, 2+5 = 7, 3+4 = 7 so Ans is 2(b).

Answer c is correct if one no is same here 3 than fix 3 as a point and move clock wise and write all no and same format for 2nd dice 3 5 1.

3 6 2 here opposite of 5 is 6 and also rest no 4 is opposite of 3.

Pramathesh said: (Jan 7, 2018)  
The answer should be option 'b'. As the sum of adjacent sides are not equal to 7 so the dice is of standard type.

And in the case of standard dice the sum of two face opp. Sides are equal to 7 so answer should be 2. As, 5+2=7.

Is this right or wrong?

Rajbanshi said: (Feb 24, 2018)  
Right answer is 2. That is standard dice. So 5+2=7.

Thanks, everyone for explaining the answer.

Rahul said: (Oct 7, 2022)  
Rule 1 ..>for the standard dice, the sum of the opposite side is always = 7
rule 2..> in standard dice, the sum of adjacent sides never =7.

in this question sum of the adjacent side is not equal to 7, then it standard dice as per rule 2

the number is (1 & 6), (2 & 5), & (3 & 4) are the opposite to each other as per rule 1

Here, the opposite of 5 is 2.

Hence option [B] is correct.
