I take it you mean the surface of the cuboid of those dimensions.

A quick sketch on paper, as you can't create it in a simple text editor, helps in cases like this.

Taking the 2 x 2 faces first, their total area = 2 x (2 x 2) = 8 cm^2

Now the 2 x 1 faces: 4 x ( 2 X 1) = 8cm^2.

So total surface area of the cuboid = 8 + 8 = 16 square centimetres.

A cube has six square faces. This cubes faces are 2 x 2 ie 4cm2 so overall surface area is 24 cm2.
