Ques: How many edges does a cube have?

    A. 14
    B. 12
    C. 10
    D. 6
    Corrected Answer: B


    Step 1: A cube has two square bases and four square faces joining the two bases.
    Step 2: So, the number of edges of a cube = number of edges of the two bases + number of edges joining the bases.
    Step 3: = (2 × 4) + 4 = 8 + 4 = 12
    Step 4: So, a cube has 12 congruent edges.
