Let there be a combination of three cubes, one on the top of the other as shown in the adjoining figure. What will be its top and side view?

(i) If we look at this solid structure from the top, we would see just a square.

(ii) If we look at it from a side, i.e. left or right, then we would see a figure as shown here.

Note: In this case the front view would also be the same.
