**Question 1.**

**Identify the nets which can be used to make cubes (cut out copies of the**

**nets and try it):**

**(i)**

**Solution**:-

The given net figure in the question cannot be folded as cube.

Therefore, it can be folded as below

**(ii)**

**Solution**:-

The given net figure in the question can be folded as cube.

Therefore, it can be folded as below,

**(iii)**

**Solution**:-

The given net figure in the question can be folded as cube.

Therefore, it can be folded as below,

**(iv)**

**Solution**:-

The given net figure in the question can be folded as cube.

Therefore, it can be folded as below,

**(v)**

**Solution**:-

The given net figure in the question cannot be folded as cube.

Therefore, it can be folded as below,

**(vi)**

**Solution**:-

The given net figure in the question can be folded as cube.

Therefore, it can be folded as below,

**Question 2.**

**Dice are cubes with dots on each face. Opposite faces of a die always have a ****total of seven dots on them.**

Here are two nets to make dice (cubes); the numbers inserted in each

square indicate the number of dots in that box.

**Insert suitable numbers in the blanks, remembering that the number on**

**the opposite faces should total to 7.**

**Solution**:-

(i)

It can be observed from the given figure the sum of the opposite faces is equal to 7.

So, the net can be folded into a net of dice.

(ii)

It can be observed from the given figure the sum of the opposite faces is equal to 7.

So, the net can be folded into a net of dice.

**Question 3.**

**Can this be a net for a die?**

**Explain your answer.**

**Solution**:-

As we can see the given net is folded as dice,

But, this cannot be a net for a die.

As it can be seen, one pair of opposite face will have 1 and 4, another pair of opposite face will have 3 and 6 the sum of these two opposite faces are not equal to 7.

**Question 4.**

**Here is an incomplete net for making a cube. Complete it in at least two**

**different ways. Remember that a cube has six faces. How many are there in**

**the net here?**

**(Give two separate diagrams. If you like, you may use a squared sheet for**

**easy manipulation.)**

**Solution**:-

So, the given net contains 3 faces & it can be completed by

**Question 5.**

**Match the nets with appropriate solids:**

**Solution**:-

(a) (ii)

As, the net (ii) can be folded as square.

(b) (iii)

As, the net (iii) can be folded as cylinder.

(c) (iv)

As, the net (iv) can be folded as cone.

(d) (i)

As, the net (i) can be folded as pyramid
