# The LSA (lateral surface area) of a cube of side 1 cm is: (1) 16cm^{2} (2) 4cm^{2} (3) 2cm^{2} (4) 1cm^{2}

The lateral surface area consists of the area of four walls of a cube added together, or 4 times the area of one of the cube's faces.

## Answer: The LSA (lateral surface area) of a cube of side 1 cm is 4cm^{2}

**Explanation:**

Given: Side length of the cube = 1cm

Lateral Surface Area of a cube (LSA) = 4 × side^{2}

=> LSA = 4 × 1^{3} (since, side = 1cm)

=> LSA = 4 cm^{2}
