    I under­stand the con­fu­sion between C & D. I first said both C & D. Then, I real­ized that I was assum­ing it was a cube. How­ev­er, the image shows up as a rec­tan­glu­ar prism on my screen. If that is the case, then only C would be cor­rect. Thanks for let­ting us know that it is sup­posed to be a cube.

    Oops, excuse the next to last senct­nece in my com­ment above. I meant that “If that is the case, then only C would be correct.”

    Well, I’m def­i­nite­ly hav­ing dif­fi­cult with my mem­o­ry or my fin­gers tonight! The com­ment above should read that If that’s the case only D, yes D, would be cor­rect. I need sleep!

    Both a & d

    D only C has the red tri­an­gle fit into the puz­zle going the wrong direction.

    I hon­est­ly believe its B if you REALLY think about fold­ing the box that way.

  11. Neeti on October 26, 2009 at 7:43

    Its D.

  12. Charles on October 27, 2009 at 11:51

    dude look at all of them care­ful­ly. on A. the 2 lines arent cor­rect. you have to rotate B.& C. and buid the box and it comes out to the same. D. all you have to do is build the box…

    actu­al­ly excuse me its d just d haha­ha i had to rethink those ones

  14. Robin on October 31, 2009 at 12:22

    I think it’s D.
