A Dice have six faces

A Dice have 8 vertices

A Dice has 12 Edges

All its six faces are shown in the mentioned diagram:

Specifically, the six faces are:

1. PQRU 2. RUST 3. STWV 4. WVPQ 5. SUVP 6. SUTR

There are certain relevant facts which should always be remembered while solving the Dice reasoning questions which are mentioned below:

It has six square shaped sides having equal length and width.

It has 8 points.

It has 12 boundaries or edges.

One can only view three sides of a cube at one point of time which are commonly known as “joint sides.”

The above figure makes it evident that the two opposite faces cannot be adjacent to each other.

For example: from the above figure, we can see that face PQRU and STWV are opposite to each other, but they can never be adjacent to one another.
