# Cubes and Dice Quiz Set 08

### Question 1

Study the three different positions of a cube given below and answer the question.

The alphabet on the face opposite to F is

A
A
B
D
C
E
D
Can't determined.
Soln.
Ans: b

If we once turn figure 1 clockwise, then figure 3 is obtained. So D is opposite F.

### Question 2

Two positions of a dice are shown below. When face A is on the top. What face will be at the bottom?

A
C
B
E
C
B
D
F
Soln.
Ans: b
F is the common face, so D will be opposite B and the face A will be opposite E.

### Question 3

Which number will be on the face opposite to the face which contains 3 ?

A
2
B
4
C
5
D
6
Soln.
Ans: c
The faces adjacent to the face 3 are 2, 1, 4 and 6. The remaining 5 number is the answer.

### Question 4

A cube has 6 numbers marked 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 on its faces. The sum of numbers on the opposite sides are 7.

What possible numbers exist on the two faces marked (A) and (B) respectively ?

A
2 and 4
B
4 and 6
C
6 and 1
D
5 and 2
Soln.
Ans: d

Face 4 is opposite 3. So A = 2, B = 4 is not possible. Similarly, A = 4 and B = 6 is ruled out. Lastly, 6 and 1 are on opposite sides, so A = 6, and B = 1 is ruled out. The fourth choice A= 5, and B = 2 is the right answer without any further thought. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's logic: "When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth."

### Question 5

Which digit will appear on the face opposite to the face with number 4 ?

A
5
B
6
C
1
D
2/3
Soln.
Ans: a
Here the common faces with number 4, are in same positions. Hence 6 is opposite to 2 and 3 is opposite to 1. Therefore 4 is opposite to 5. Otherwise also, the dice clearly show that 4 is adjacent to 1, 2, 3 and 6. So it can be opposite only to 5.
