Solution to 1986 Problem 52

The potential everywhere inside the cube must be V, otherwise the potential would have a local maximum or minimum inside the cube (which it can't have as a solution to Laplace's equation). In particular, the potential at the center of the cube is V. Therefore, answer (E) is correct.
