**CBSE Class 10 Maths Chapter 13 Important Questions and Answers: **From Class 9^{th} itself, students have been made familiar with the characteristics of solids like cuboid, cone, cylinder, and sphere. They are also familiar on how to find their surface areas and volumes. In chapter 13 of Unit VI, Class 10 Mathematics, students are made familiar with the number of solids made up of combinations of two or more of the basic solids.

Chapter 13 covers topics such as Surface areas and volumes of combinations of any two of the following: cubes, cuboids, spheres, hemispheres and right circular cylinders/cones.
