### All the faces of a cube are painted with blue colour. Then it is cut into 125 small equal cubes. How many small cubes will be formed having no face coloured ?

• A.

27

• B.

8

• C.

16

• D.

24

A. 27
Explanation
When a cube is cut into smaller equal cubes, the number of small cubes formed is equal to the number of divisions made on each side of the cube. In this case, the original cube is divided into 5 smaller cubes on each side, resulting in a total of 5 x 5 x 5 = 125 small cubes. Since all the faces of the original cube were painted blue, the small cubes that are formed by cutting the cube will have no face colored. Therefore, the correct answer is 27.

### A cube is cut in two equal parts along a plane parallel to one of its faces. One piece is then coloured red on the two larger faces and green on the remaining, while the other is coloured green on two smaller adjacent faces and red on the remaining. Each is then cut into 32 cubes of same size and mixed up. What is the number of cubes with at least one green face each ?

• A.

36

• B.

32

• C.

38

• D.

48

C. 38
Explanation
When the cube is cut into two equal parts along a plane parallel to one of its faces, each part will have the same number of cubes with green faces. One piece is coloured red on the two larger faces and green on the remaining, which means it has 4 cubes with green faces. The other piece is coloured green on two smaller adjacent faces and red on the remaining, which means it also has 4 cubes with green faces. When each piece is cut into 32 cubes of the same size, each piece will have 16 cubes with green faces. Therefore, the total number of cubes with at least one green face is 16 + 16 + 6 = 38.

Cant Determine

C. K
Explanation
K is seated between E and H. This can be determined by analyzing the given information. According to the given information, J is between L and F, and H is second to the left of J. Therefore, the seating arrangement can be represented as L - J - H. Since there are only two people seated on each side of the table, the only possible position for E is opposite to H. Therefore, the seating arrangement can be represented as L - J - H - E. And since K is the only remaining person, it can be concluded that K is seated between E and H.
