Number of ways in which two faces of a cuboid 6*7*8 dimensions can be painted in green?

@abhishekdave28  Yes. If I take a perfect cube with no markings on any surface, paint one face, and place it on the ground, with a fixed orientation, I can refer to the painted face as "Top" "Bottom", "North" or whatever.

But if I take a cube and paint one face, and just keep it freely in space, will it make a difference which side is painted? If I were to take a hundred cubes, and paint one side of each at random, tossed them in a crate and gave them to you, would you be able to distinguish one from another? Thus we would say "there is only one way to paint one face of a cube". Similarly if I were to randomly paint two faces of a cube, there would be just 2 ways (opposite faces, or adjacent faces) rather than the 6C2 i.e. 15 we would get if all the faces were distinct (for example if it were a die with faces marked 1 to 6). 

I hope that makes sense

I also feel it should be 6 @pokermaster  In such questions if nothing is mentioned we assume the cuboid to be floating in space, so the two faces of the same sides (say 6x7) are effectively identical.

So let's say we have 3 types of faces A (6x7), B (6x8), C (7x8) then we can either paint two faces of the same type AA, BB, CC or two adjacent faces of different types AB, AC, BC.  Every combination of two faces can be rotated to give one of the above combinations I guess.

(If we have the cuboid fixed relative to the ground such that we are treating all 6 faces as distinct, then it would be 6C2 i.e. 15.)

Not a BITSian, but I know a few people from BITS Goa, and got the impression that it was an excellent place (in terms of quality of people). Can certainly be mentioned in the same breath as the top NITs and IITs. However, I don't know that much about placements (the folks I know did get decent placements) - am speaking more of the quality of people.

Frankly, I feel that folk from colleges like BITS-P or -G, or VJTI or ICT for that matter (I know plenty of folks from those), are pretty much IITians who just happened to mess up the JEE that year. They have similar aptitudes and attitudes for the most part. Whenever I run into someone from any of these colleges my expectations are generally high (and I've rarely been disappointed). I don't think someone would regret going there, either from the point of view of personality development or from a career perspective. (Entirely my personal opinion, mind you)

D followed by CE. Generic to specific.

B said "nominations should naturally be..." and then A says "equally clearly..." so it follows.
