‘c’ is eliminated immediately simply because the images themselves dont work (i.e the ‘6’ side is turned 90 degress from what is should be)

‘b’ doesnt work because orange side with the green dot should be on the opposite side.

‘a’ and ‘d’ are similar, but if you were to complete the cube while continuing to have the ‘#’ side facing you, the ‘6’ would be to the back, the ‘X’ on top, and the star to the right, which is what image a represents.

Definitely A, seems it’s the only correct one.

It was interesting not having a question.

Thanks for all the puzzles and news, great site!

I’m thinking D for some reason.

Yes, A must be the correct answer, however the various images are obviously not perfect. The X for example is supposed to have equal sides in length with a top/bottom that is different from its left/right. The top, if you will, of the X is supposed to face the 6 dots, however in figure A, it appears that perhaps the right side of the X is facing the 6 dots… granted its deformed and a bit hard to tell.

a b c and d

A is only working solution.

B- x on wrong side

C- single dot not perpendicular to row of three

D- star is on wrong side
