Solution:

Faces with four numbers 6, 2, 5 and 3 are adjacent of to the face with No. 4.

Hence the faces with no. 6, 2, 5 and 3 cannot be opposite to the face with no. 4.

Therefore the remaining face with no.1 will be the opposite of the face with no. 4.


Rule No. 2:

If two different positions of a dice are shown and one of the two common faces is in the same position then of the remaining faces will be opposite to each other.

Example:

Two different positions of a dice are shown below.

Here in both shown positions two faces 5 and 3 are common.

The remaining faces are 2 and 4.

Hence the number on the face opposite to the face with number 2 is 4.

Here in both positions of common (3) is same.

Therefore, opposite of 5 is 6 and opposite of 4 is 2.


Rule No. 4:

Here in two positions of a dice the face with number 1 is not in the same position.

The face with number 6 is not shown.
