Nets of Solids Worksheet

**Page 1**

1.

Which solid can be formed using the net shown?

a. | a cylinder | ||

b. | a prism | ||

c. | a sphere | ||

d. | a cone |

If the net is folded, the two circles form the two circular bases and the rectangle forms the curved part of a cylinder.

So, the three-dimensional figure formed will be a cylinder.

Correct answer : (1)

2.

What figure can you make from the net?

a. | a cylinder | ||

b. | a cylinder with no bases | ||

c. | a cube with no base | ||

d. | a rectangular prism |

Correct answer : (2)

3.

Identify the rectangular prism that the net shown would fold into.

a. | Figure 4 | ||

b. | Figure 3 | ||

c. | Figure 1 | ||

d. | Figure 2 |

When the given net is folded, it matches with Figure 3.

So, Figure 3 is the rectangular prism that the net shown would fold into.

Correct answer : (2)

4.

Which of the nets can be folded to form a cylinder?

a. | Figure 2 | ||

b. | Figure 4 | ||

c. | Figure 3 | ||

d. | Figure 1 |

The net in Figure 1 has two circular bases, which are parallel and congruent when the rectangular face is folded.

The net in Figure 2 has two circular bases, which are neither congruent nor parallel when the rectangular face is folded.

The nets in Figure 3 and Figure 4 have two circular bases, which are congruent but not parallel when the rectangular faces are folded.

So, the net in Figure 1 can be folded to form a cylinder.

Correct answer : (4)

5.

Which of the nets can be folded to form a rectangular prism?

a. | Figure 2 | ||

b. | Figure 1 | ||

c. | Figure 4 | ||

d. | Figure 3 |

The nets in Figure 1, Figure 2 and Figure 3 cannot be folded into rectangular prisms as they have only 5 faces.

Figure 4 has six faces and its bases are in the form of squares.

So, Figure 4 can be folded to form a rectangular prism .

Correct answer : (3)

6.

Which net can be folded to form a rectangular prism?

a. | Figure 2 | ||

b. | Figure 3 | ||

c. | Figure 1 | ||

d. | Figure 4 |

The net in Figure 1 has six faces required to form a rectangular prism.

The net in Figure 2 has only 4 faces and the nets in Figure 3 and Figure 4 have only 5 faces.

So, the net in Figure 1 can be folded to form a rectangular prism.

Correct answer : (3)

7.

Identify the net for the rectangular prism.

a. | Figure 2 | ||

b. | Figure 4 | ||

c. | Figure 1 | ||

d. | Figure 3 |

[A rectangular prism has six faces in the form of rectangles or squares, with the opposite sides being congruent and parallel.]

The nets in Figure 2 and Figure 4 have six faces but cannot be folded into a rectangular prism as shown.

The net in Figure 3 can be folded into a rectangular prism as shown.

So, Figure 3 represents the net for the rectangular prism.

Correct answer : (4)

8.

Which of the figures represents the front view of the solid?

a. | Figure 3 | ||

b. | Figure 2 | ||

c. | Figure 1 | ||

d. | none of these |

Among the figures, Figure 1 is the front view of the solid.

Correct answer : (3)

9.

Which of the figures represents the side view of the solid?

a. | Figure 3 | ||

b. | Figure 1 | ||

c. | Figure 2 | ||

d. | none of these |

Among the figures, Figure 3 is the side view of the solid figure.

Correct answer : (1)

10.

Which is the top view of the solid?

a. | Figure 1 | ||

b. | Figure 2 | ||

c. | Figure 3 | ||

d. | none of these |

Among the figures, Figure 1 is the top view of the solid.

Correct answer : (1)
