Before solving the question, let’s first understand the rules of dice:

  1. If there is one element that is common in both dices also having the same surface then the remaining surface of both dice is opposite to each other.

  • Below are the opposite surfaces: 
    • $3 \longrightarrow 1$
    • $5 \longrightarrow 2$
    • $4 \longrightarrow 6$
  1. If two numbers are the same in both dices whether their surface is not equal, then the remaining number of both dice are opposite to each other.

  • Below are the opposite surfaces:  
    • $5 \longrightarrow 2$
  1. If there is one element common in both the dices having different surfaces then rotate it in the clockwise direction to find out the opposite surface.

 

  • Below are the opposite surfaces: 
    • $5 \longrightarrow 1$
    • $4 \longrightarrow 6$
  • $\textbf{Note:}$ After rotating in a clockwise direction  $6 \& 4$ become the first appearance So these are opposite to each other. $5 \& 1$ appear in the second one So, these ones are opposite each other.
  1. The opposite surface of the open dice can be find by the below method:
    1. Alternate surfaces are opposite to each other.
    2. No two opposite surfaces are touched by side or by a corner 

  • Below are the opposite surfaces: 
    • $\text{M} \longrightarrow \text{Q}$
    • $\text{N} \longrightarrow \text{R}$
    • $\text{T} \longrightarrow \text{S}$

Now, let's solve the question.

Given original figure:

The black edge is perpendicular to the given line and the white shaded edge is parallel to the given line.

So, only option $\text{(D)}$ is possible.

Correct Answer $:\text{D}$
