**4. **A right circular cylinder of radius r cm and height h cm (h>2r) just encloses a sphere of diameter

(A) r cm

(B) 2r cm

(C) h cm

(D) 2h cm

**Answer: (B)**

**Explanation:** Because the sphere is enclosed inside the cylinder, therefore the diameter of sphere is equal to the diameter of cylinder which is 2*r* cm.

**5. **A hollow cube of internal edge 22cm is filled with spherical marbles of diameter 0.5 cm and it is assumed that 1/8th space of the cube remains unfilled. Then the number of marbles that the cube can accommodate is

(A) 142244

(B) 142396

(C) 142496

(D) 142596

**Answer: (A)**

**Explanation:**

**6. **A metallic spherical shell of internal and external diameters 4 cm and 8 cm respectively, is melted and recast into the form of a cone with base diameter 8cm. The height of the cone is

(A) 12cm

(B) 14cm

(C) 15cm

(D) 18cm

**Answer: (B)**

**Explanation:**Since volume will remain same, therefore,

**7. **A solid piece of iron in the form of a cuboid of dimensions 49cm × 33cm × 24cm, is moulded to form a solid sphere. The radius of the sphere is

(A) 21cm

(B) 23cm

(C) 25cm

(D) 19cm

**Answer: (A)**

**Explanation:** Since volume will remain the same, therefore,

**8. **If two solid hemispheres of same base radii r, are joined together along their bases, then curved surface area of this new solid is

(A) 4πr^{2}

(B) 6πr^{2}

(C) 3πr^{2}

(D) 8πr^{2}

**Answer: (A)**

**Explanation:** Because curved surface area of a hemisphere is and here we join two solid hemispheres along their bases of radii r, from which we get a solid sphere.

Hence the curved surface area of new solid = 2πr^{2} + 2πr^{2} = 4πr^{2}

**9.** A solid cylinder of radius r and height h is placed over other cylinder of same height and radius. The total surface area of the shape so formed is

(A) 4πrh + 4πr^{2}

(B) 4πrh − 4πr^{2}

(C) 4πrh + 2πr^{2}

(D) 4πrh − 2πr^{2}

**Answer: (C)**

**Explanation:** Since the total surface area of cylinder of radius r and height h = 2πrh + 2πr^{2}.

When one cylinder is placed over the other cylinder of same height and radius,

Then height of new cylinder = 2h

And radius of the new cylinder = r

Therefore total surface area of new cylinder

= 2πr (2h) + 2πr^{2}

= 4πrh + 2πr^{2}

**10.** The radii of the top and bottom of a bucket of slant height 45cm are 28cm and 7 cm respectively. The curved surface area of the bucket is:

(A) 4950 cm^{2}

(B) 4951 cm^{2}

(C) 4952 cm^{2}

(D) 4953 cm^{2}

**Answer: (A)**

**Explanation:**

Curved Surface area of the bucket = π (R + r) l

⇒ Curved surface area of the bucket = π (28 + 7) X 45

⇒ Curved surface area of the bucket = 4950 cm^{2}

**11.** A medicine-capsule is in the shape of a cylinder of diameter 0.5 cm with two hemispheres stuck to each of its ends. The length of entire capsule is 2 cm. The capacity of the capsule is

(A) 0.36 cm^{3}

(B) 0.35 cm^{3}

(C) 0.34 cm^{3}

(D) 0.33 cm^{3}

**Answer: (A)**

**Explanation: **

Since diameter of the cylinder = diameter of the hemisphere = 0.5cm

Radius of cylinder r = radius of hemisphere r = 0.5/2 = 0.25 cm

Observe the figure,

Total length of capsule = 2cm

Capacity of capsule is:

(A) 32.7 litres

(B) 33.7 litres

(C) 34.7 litres

(D) 31.7 litres

**Answer: (A)**

**Explanation:** Since shape of bucket is like Frustum,

Therefore, volume of bucket
