Question 23

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

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.
