Q.1 Identify the nets which can be used to make cubes (Cut out copies of the nets and try it): NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 15 Visualising Solid Shapes

Fig. (ii), (iii), (iv) and (vi) can be used to make cubes.

Q.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.  NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 15 Visualising Solid Shapes Q.3 Can this be a net for a die? Explain your answer. NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 15 Visualising Solid Shapes

If one pair of opposite faces will have 1 and 4 on them, then their total does not come 7.
If we take 3 and 6 on the opposite faces of the die, then the total does not come 7.
Hence, this cannot be for a die.

Q. 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.) NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 15 Visualising Solid Shapes Q.5 Match the nets with appropriate solids: NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 15 Visualising Solid Shapes

NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 15 Visualising Solid Shapes Q.3 Three cubes with 2 cm edge are placed side by side to form a cuboid. Sketch an oblique or isometric sketch of this cuboid.

NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 15 Visualising Solid Shapes Q.4 Make an oblique sketch for each one of the given isometric shapes: NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 15 Visualising Solid Shapes Q.5 Give (i) an oblique sketch and (ii) an isometric sketch for each of the following:
(?) A cuboid of dimensions 5 cm, 3 cm and 2 cm. (Is your sketch unique?)
(b) A cube with an edge 4 cm long. An isometric sheet is attached at the end of the book. You could try to make on it some cubes or cuboids of dimensions specified by your friend.
