Soln.
Ans: c

The odd numbered dice are 1st, 3rd and 5th. Consider this deduction.

1. Dice No. A: Face opposite 6 is 7 because 6 + 7 = 13. Similarly, face opposite 4 is 9. So, the numbers that appear on the sides are 4, 6, 7 and 9. Out of the remaining 5 and 8, the bottom face is 8.
2. Dice C: Similarly, 8 is at the bottom.
3. Dice E: 4 is at the bottom.

So sum is 8 + 8 + 4 = 20.
