11 Plus Nets of Cubes Spatial, Non-Verbal Reasoning Tests

Visuteach provides interactive online 11 plus nets of cubes spatial reasoning (spatial awareness) non-verbal reasoning questions in our nets of cubes membership packages. We have 80 nets of cubes questions made up of two types of questions:

  • Nets to Cubes (48 questions)
  • Partial Nets (32 questions)

Which one of the four cubes can be made by folding the net?

nets of cubes 11 plus question 1

Answer: D

For these questions, it is often difficult to spot the correct answer. Therefore, a good way to solve these questions is to eliminate the answers that are wrong. Look for the following types of errors on the cubes:

(i) opposite faces on the net appearing as two of the three (adjacent) faces on the cube
(ii) a shape that has been rotated or is pointing in the wrong direction
(iii) a shape that appears on the wrong face of the cube (e.g. a shape that should be on the left face appearing instead on the right face or top face)

Eliminate A because it is impossible to form this cube from the net since the faces of the net linked by the yellow arrow (shown in the figure below) are on opposite sides of the cube (i.e. they cannot be adjacent or touching faces as shown in A).

Eliminate B because the arrow on the top face should point towards the left face.

Eliminate C because the shape on the right face has been rotated. The arrow should point towards the top left corner of the right face.

The figure above shows the three pairs of opposite sides of the cube that would be formed by folding the net. The red arrow links one pair of opposite sides, the yellow arrow links another pair of opposite sides, and the green arrow links the other pair of opposite sides.

Which one of the four cubes can be made by folding the net?

nets of cubes 11 plus question 2

Answer: C

For these questions, it is often difficult to spot the correct answer. Therefore, a good way to solve these questions is to eliminate the answers that are wrong. Look for the following types of errors on the cubes:

(i) opposite faces on the net appearing as two of the three (adjacent) faces on the cube
(ii) a shape that has been rotated or is pointing in the wrong direction
(iii) a shape that appears on the wrong face of the cube (e.g. a shape that should be on the left face appearing instead on the right face or top face)

Eliminate A because the arrow on the top face should point towards the shape on the right face.

Eliminate B because the shape on the left face should be on the right face and vice versa.

Eliminate D because it is impossible to form this cube from the net since the faces of the net linked by the green arrow (shown in the figure below) are on opposite sides of the cube (i.e. they cannot be adjacent or touching faces as shown in D).

nets of cubes 11 plus spatial answer 2

The figure above shows the three pairs of opposite sides of the cube that would be formed by folding the net. The red arrow links one pair of opposite sides, the yellow arrow links another pair of opposite sides, and the green arrow links the other pair of opposite sides.

Which one of the four cubes can be made by folding the net?

nets of cubes 11 plus question 3

Answer: B

For these questions, it is often difficult to spot the correct answer. Therefore, a good way to solve these questions is to eliminate the answers that are wrong. Look for the following types of errors on the cubes:

(i) opposite faces on the net appearing as two of the three (adjacent) faces on the cube
(ii) a shape that has been rotated or is pointing in the wrong direction
(iii) a shape that appears on the wrong face of the cube (e.g. a shape that should be on the left face appearing instead on the right face or top face)

Eliminate A because it is impossible to form this cube from the net since the faces of the net linked by the yellow arrow (shown in the figure below) are on opposite sides of the cube (i.e. they cannot be adjacent or touching faces as shown in A).

Eliminate C because the arrow on the top face should point away from the left face.

Eliminate D because it is impossible to form this cube from the net since the faces of the net linked by the red arrow (shown in the figure below) are on opposite sides of the cube (i.e. they cannot be adjacent or touching faces as shown in D).

nets of cubes 11 plus spatial answer 3

The figure above shows the three pairs of opposite sides of the cube that would be formed by folding the net. The red arrow links one pair of opposite sides, the yellow arrow links another pair of opposite sides, and the green arrow links the other pair of opposite sides.

Which one of the four partial nets can be folded to make the cube on the left?

nets of cubes 11 plus question 4

Answer: D

For these questions, it is often difficult to spot the correct answer. Therefore, a good way to solve these questions is to eliminate the answers that are wrong. Look for the following types of errors on the nets:

(i) nets which have shapes on what are opposite faces of the cube
(ii) nets which when folded into a cube have a shape which has been rotated or is pointing in the wrong direction
(iii) nets which when folded into a cube have a shape on the wrong face of the cube (e.g. a shape that should be on the left face appearing instead on the right face or top face)

Eliminate A because if you fold the net so that the crescent is on the top face, then the shape on the left face is rotated i.e. the arrow points in the wrong direction.

Eliminate B because the shapes linked by the yellow arrow (shown in the figure below) are on opposite faces.

Eliminate C because if you fold the net so that the arrow is on the left face, then the crescent on the top face is rotated.

nets of cubes 11 plus spatial answer 4

In the figure above, one pair of opposite sides is linked by the yellow arrow(s), another pair of opposite sides is linked by the red arrow(s), and the other pair of opposite sides is linked by the green arrow(s).

Which one of the four partial nets can be folded to make the cube on the left?

nets of cubes 11 plus question 5

Answer: D

For these questions, it is often difficult to spot the correct answer. Therefore, a good way to solve these questions is to eliminate the answers that are wrong. Look for the following types of errors on the nets:

(i) nets which have shapes on what are opposite faces of the cube
(ii) nets which when folded into a cube have a shape which has been rotated or is pointing in the wrong direction
(iii) nets which when folded into a cube have a shape on the wrong face of the cube (e.g. a shape that should be on the left face appearing instead on the right face or top face)

Eliminate A because if you fold the net so that the diagonal cross is on the top face, then the shape on the right face is rotated.

Eliminate B because if you fold the net so that the diagonal cross is on the top face, then the shape on the right face is rotated.

Eliminate C because the shapes linked by the yellow arrow (shown in the figure below) are on opposite faces.

nets of cubes 11 plus spatial answer 5

In the figure above, one pair of opposite sides is linked by the yellow arrow(s), another pair of opposite sides is linked by the red arrow(s), and the other pair of opposite sides is linked by the green arrow(s).

Which one of the four partial nets can be folded to make the cube on the left?

nets of cubes 11 plus question 6

Answer: C

For these questions, it is often difficult to spot the correct answer. Therefore, a good way to solve these questions is to eliminate the answers that are wrong. Look for the following types of errors on the nets:

(i) nets which have shapes on what are opposite faces of the cube
(ii) nets which when folded into a cube have a shape which has been rotated or is pointing in the wrong direction
(iii) nets which when folded into a cube have a shape on the wrong face of the cube (e.g. a shape that should be on the left face appearing instead on the right face or top face)

Eliminate A because if you fold the net so that 6 is on the top face, then the number on the left face should be on the right face and vice versa.

Eliminate B and D because the shapes linked by the yellow arrows (shown in the figure below) are on opposite faces.

nets of cubes 11 plus spatial answer 6

In the figure above, one pair of opposite sides is linked by the yellow arrow(s), another pair of opposite sides is linked by the red arrow(s), and the other pair of opposite sides is linked by the green arrow(s).
