Hint: First we have to know a geometry net is a 2-dimensional shape that can be folded to form a 3-dimensional shape or a solid. Or a net is a pattern made when the surface of a three-dimensional figure is laid out flat showing each face of the figure. Using the rules of the net, draw the net of the given cuboid.

Complete step-by-step answer:
 The net of a \[3D\] shape is what it looks like if it is opened out flat. A net can be folded up to make a \[3D\] shape. There may be several possible nets for one 3D shape. You can draw a net on paper, then fold it into the shape. The attributes of the nets are:
Each net has six squares that when folded properly form the six faces of a cube.
For each net, six faces are connected by five edges. Have students share and write what they learned about a cube.
Cubes have twelve edges.
Given a cuboid of length is \[4\;cm\], breadth is \[3\;cm\] and height is \[2\;cm\]. Then using the rules of nets, one of the net of the given cuboid is

 There are exactly eleven nets that will form a cuboid.

Note: A cuboid is a \[3D\] shape with sides that are rectangular. Cuboids have six surfaces and twelve edges. If a cuboid has faces that are all square it is a cube. All the angles in a cuboid are right angles.
