If dice (I), (II) and (III) have an odd number of dots on their top faces, and the dice (IV), (V) and (VI) have an even number of dots on their top faces, then what is the difference in the total number of top faces between the two sets?

a. 0 b. 3 c. 1 d. -5

Explanation:

Number of faces on the top faces of the dice (I), (II) and (III) are 5, 1 and 5 respectively. Therefore, the total of these numbers = 5 + 1 + 5 = 11 Number of dots on the top faces of the dice (IV), (V) and (VI) are 6, 4 and 6 respectively. Therefore, the total of these numbers = 6+4+6=16 Required difference = 11 -16=-5

Example 2:

You are given three positions of dice then which face is opposite to the face with alphabet B?

a. E b. F c. D d. A

Explanation:

From figures (i) and (ii), we can conclude that the alphabets C, D, A and E lie adjacent to the alphabet F. So, the alphabet B lies opposite F and conversely F lies opposite B.
