cube root of 5 is 125 so 128 is nearer to 125 and hence 5+5+5=15 and the nearest answer amongst options is 17 so 17 is correct answer:) yipppy........

et, side of original plate be =x
also, side of the square at the corners= a
so, when the square at the corner is cut off, the length of the box is=x-2a
similarly, the breadth of the box is=x-2a
the height of the box would be invariably=a
so, the dimension of the open box=(x-2a)*(x-2a)*a=a*(x-2a)^2
so, we need to factorize 128 so that we get a square term & an integer.
case 1. 128=2*2*2*2*2*2*2=(2*2*2*2*2)*2*2=32*2*2
so, a=32, x-2a=2, x=2*32+2=66
case 2. 128=2*2*2*2*2*2*2=(2*2*2)*(2*2)*(2*2)=8*4*4
so, a=8, x-2a=4, x=2*8+4=20
case 3. 128=2*2*2*2*2*2*2=2*(2*2*2)*(2*2*2)=2*8*8
so, a=2, x-2a=8, x=2*2+8=12
so, the possible values of the side of the original square plate are 66, 20 & 12
none of these match the answer options provided in a. , b. or c.
so, the correct choice is d. or none
