Expert Answer:

The points a and b are located on the opposite faces of the cube, as only then the line passing through them would lie inside the cube. Also, they are opposite to one another i.e. , if the point a is the lower leftside point on the front face, the point b would be the top rightside point on the back face of the cube. Hence, the shortest distance that ant can cover would be to go diagnoally from the point a to the mid point of the right side vertical edge of the front face and then go diagonally from here to the point b.
