# When a torch is pointed towards one of the vertical edges of a cube, you get a shadow of cube in the shape of

(a) square

(b) rectangle but not a square

(c) circle

(d) triangle

**Solution:**

We know that

A cube is a 3D solid object with six square faces and all the sides of a cube are of the same length. It is also known as a regular hexahedron and is one of the five platonic solids. The shape consists of six square faces, eight vertices, and twelve edges.

If a torch is pointed towards one of the vertical edges of a cube, the shadow is a rectangle but not a square.

Therefore, the shadow of the cube is in the shape of a rectangle but not a square.

**✦ Try This: **If we rotate a right-angled triangle of height 9 cm and base 7 cm about its base, we get:

(a) cone of height 7 cm and base 7 cm

(b) cone of height 9 cm and base 9 cm

(c) cone of height 9 cm and base 7 cm

(d) cone of height 7 cm and base 9 cm
