The correct answer is option (c) 1: 4

Explanation:

Given: The cube side is 4cm.

The side of cube 4cm is cut into small cubes, in which each of 1 cm

Therefore, the total number of cubes = 4 x 16 = 64 cubes

Thus, the number of cut-out cubes = 64/1

Now, the surface area of the cut-out cubes = c x 1 cm2

The surface area of the original cube = 6 x 42

Hence, the required ratio obtained is:

= 6 x 42 / = 64 x 6

= 1: 4
