# Reasoning Dices questions with answer

##### 21.How many dots are there on the dice face opposite the one with three dots?

A) 2

B) 4

C) 5

D) 6

Explanation:From figures (i), (ii) and (iv), we conclude that 6, 4,1 and 2 dots appear adjacent to 3 dots. Clearly, there will be 5 dots on the face opposite the face with 3 dots.

##### 22.A dice is numbered from 1 to 6 in different ways. If 1 is adjacent to 2, 4 and 6, then which of the following statements is necessarily true?

A) 2 is opposite to 6

B) 1 is adjacent to 3

C) 3 is adjacent to 5

D) 3 is opposite to 5

Explanation:If 1 is adjacent to 2, 4 and 6 then either 3 or 5 lies opposite to 1. So, the numbers 3 and 5 cannot lie opposite to each other. Hence, 3 is adjacent to 5 (necessarily).

##### 23.A dice is numbered from 1 to 6 in different ways. If 1 is adjacent to 2, 3 and 5, then which of the following statements is necessarily true?

A) 4 is adjacent to 6

B) 2 is adjacent to 5

C) 1 is adjacent to 6

D) 1 is adjacent to 4

Explanation:If 1 is adjacent to 2, 3 and 5, then either 4 or 6 lies opposite to 1. So, the numbers 4 and 6 cannot lie opposite to each other. Hence, 4 necessarily lies adjacent to 6.

##### 24. Four usual dice are thrown on the ground. The total of numbers on the top faces of these four dice is 13 as the top faces showed 4, 3, 1 and 5 respectively. What is the total of the faces touching the ground?

A) 12

B) 13

C) 15

D) Cannot be determined

Explanation:In a usual dice, the sum of the numbers on any two opposite faces is always 7. Thus, 1 is opposite 6, 2 is opposite 5 and 3 is opposite 4. Consequently, when 4, 3, 1 and 5 are the numbers on the top faces, then 3, 4, 6 and 2 respectively are the numbers on the face touching the ground. The total of these numbers = 3 + 4 + 6 + 2 = 15.

##### 25.Observe the dots on a dice (one to six dots) in the following figures. How many dots are contained on the face opposite to that containing four dots?

A) 2

B) 3

C) 6

D) Cannot be determined

Explanation:We shall assume the dice in fig. (ii) to be rotated so that the 5 dots appear at the same position as in fig. (i) i.e. on RHS face (i.e. on face II as per activity 1) and 1 dot appears at the same position as in fig; (i) i.e. on Front face (i.e. on face I). Then, from the, two figures, 2 dots appear on the top face (i.e. on face V) and 4 dots appear on the Bottom face (i.e. on face VI). Since, these two faces are opposite to each other, therefore, two dots are contained on the face opposite to that containing four dots.

##### 26. What will be the number at the bottom, if 5 is at the top; the two positions of the dice being as given below:

A) 1

B) 2

C) 3

D) 6

Explanation:From figures (i) and (ii), it is clear that 4, 1, 3 and 6 he adjacent to 2. Therefore, 5 must lie opposite 2. Thus, if 5 is at the top, then 2 must be at the bottom.

##### 27. A dice is numbered from 1 to 6 in different ways. If 1 is opposite to 5 and 2 is opposite to 3, then

A) 4 is adjacent to 3 and 6

B) 2 is adjacent to 4 and 6

C) 4 is adjacent to 5 and 6

D) 6 is adjacent to 3 and 4

Answer:B) 2 is adjacent to 4 and 6

Explanation:If 1 is opposite to 5 and 2 is opposite to 3, then 4 definitely lies opposite to 6. Therefore, 2 cannot lie opposite to any of the two numbers - 4 or 6. Hence, 2 necessarily lies adjacent to both 4 and 6.

##### 28.Three different positions X, Y and Z of a dice are shown in the figures given below. Which number lies opposite 6?

A) 1

B) 2

C) 4

D) 5

Explanation:From positions X and Y we conclude that 1, 5, 6 and 3 lie adjacent to 4. Therefore, 2 must lie opposite 4. From positions Y and Z we conclude that 4, 3, 2 and 5 lie adjacent to 6. Therefore, 1 must lie opposite 6. Thus, 2 lies opposite 4, 1 lies opposite 6 and consequently 5 lies opposite 3. As analysed above, 1 lies opposite 6.

A) 2

B) 4

C) 1

D) 6
