We have to determine the type of the unit cell that results when all of the anions from the given unit cell are removed and only cations are left.
The given unit cell has a face-centered cubic structure.
Recall that the face-centered cubic lattice contains an atom in each of the face of the cube and an atom in each of the corners.
What type of structure would result if all the anions were somehow removed, leaving only cations?
