Straight (E) for me : we have no clue about a correct formula for the volume to apply :)

A box could be any shapes :)

Hello Fig

shouldn't the answer be (A)

since A=12/BC then ABC = 12

The problem is that we do not know if the box is created only of rectangulars :)

what would the other formulas be?

a cube = s^3 = s*s*s = a* b* c
a rectangular box = a* b* c

buit I take A as box can be of only ractangle/square shape.

i believe gmat defines box as a ractangular shape with length, height and width.

Well, we could have:
o 2 rhombus
o 4 rectangles

That gives us a shape matching a,b and c (making sense) yet we can not conclude because we need the heigth and the postions of these rhombus :)
