#### Explanation:

Given

#"l = 6"# #"b = 8"# #"h = 10"#

Sum of surface areas of two opposite faces

#"lb + lb = (6 × 8) + (6 × 8) = 96"# #"bh + bh = (8 × 10) + (8 × 10) = 160"# #"lh + lh = (6 × 10) + (6 × 10) = 120"#

Sum of surface areas of two adjacent faces

#"lb + lh = (6 × 8) + (6 × 10) = 108"# #"lb + bh = (6 × 8) + (8 × 10) = 128"# #"bh + lh = (8 × 10) + (6 × 10) = 140"#
