What question # is this from the official guide. Which official guide is this from? Official guide or the quant review? Please mention the complete thing.

You need to find the total area of the 2 halves created by the black plane added to the figure. Doing this, you will get 6 distinct regions that will be the

1. rectangle shaded in black with dimensions 3 \(\sqrt(2)\) * 3
2. 2 slanted rectangles with dimensions 3*3
3. 2 Triangles, 1 at the top and 1 at the bottom with area : 0.5*3*3

Thus the total surface area of the 1 of the 2 halves created: 3 \(\sqrt(2)\) * 3 + 2*0.5*3*3 + 2*3*3 = 9+18+9 \(\sqrt(2)\) = 27+ 9 \(\sqrt(2)\) . A is the correct answer.

thank you very much. but i can not understand ``one of the resulting halves```. what does it mean to the structure?

You still have not provided the question number of this question from the official guide.

Dividing into halves means that the shaded plane divides the cube into 2 equal shapes/halves having identical properties.

1. rectangle shaded in black with dimensions 3 \(\sqrt(2)\) * 3
2. 2 slanted rectangles with dimensions 3*3

May be Typo mistake.The distinct regions will be 5.
