  1. 1 Liter = 10 deciliters = 100 centiliters = 1000 milliliters

    so 1L = 10 dl = 100 cl = 1000 ml

    Ask yourself, is 1L, which is a measure of volume, likely to be = 1 dm, a measure of length?
    1 cm cubed, or cm^3, on the other hand is a measure of volume. So that should be our first clue.
    1 Liters = 1000 cm cubed so neither of the possibilities you give are correct.
