(a) 9 : 1
(b) 1 : 9
(c) 3 : 1
(d) 1 : 3
Solution:
Let r be the radius and h be the height of cylinder, then volume = πr2h
Now volume of cone = πr2h

Question 5.
If the radius of the base of a right circular cone is 3r and its height is equal to the radius of the base, then its volume is

Solution:
Radius of the base of a cone (R) = 3r
and height (H) = 3r

Question 6.
If the volumes of two cones are in the ratio 1 : 4 and their diameters are in the ratio 4 : 5, then the ratio of their heights, is
(a) 1 : 5
(b) 5 : 4
(c) 5 : 16
(d) 25 : 64
Solution:
Ratio in the volumes of two cones =1:4
and ratio in their diameter = 4:5
Let h1, h2 be their heights

Question 7.
The curved surface area of one cone is twice that of the other while the slant height of the latter is twice that of the former. The ratio of their radii is
(a) 2 : 1
(b) 4 : 1
(c) 8 : 1
(d) 1 : 1
Solution:
Let r be the radius and l be the slant height
∴ Curved surface area of first cone = πr1l1
and let curved surface area of second cone = πr2l2

Question 8.
If the height and radius of a cone of volume V are doubled, then the volume of the cone, is
(a) 3V
(b) 4V
(c) 6V
(d) 8V
Solution:
Let r and h be the radius and height of a cone, then

Question 9.
The ratio of the volume of a right circular cylinder and a right circular cone of the same base and height, is
(a) 1 : 3
(b) 3 : 1
(c) 4 : 3
(d) 3 : 4
Solution:
Let r be the radius and h be the height of a right circular cylinder and a right circular cone, and V1 and V2 are their volumes, the V1 =  πr2h and

Question 10.
A right cylinder and a right circular cone have the same radius and same volumes. The ratio of the height of the cylinder to that of the cone is
(a) 3 : 5
(b) 2 : 5
(c) 3 : 1
(d) 1 : 3
Solution:
Let r be the radius of cylinder and cone and volumes are equal
and h1, and h2 be their have h2 is respectively

Question 11.
The diameters of two cones are equal. If their slant heights are in the ratio 5 : 4, the ratio of their curved surface areas, is
(a) 4 : 5
(b) 25 : 16
(c) 16 : 25
(d) 5 : 4
Solution:
∵ Diameters of two cones are equal
∴ Their radii are also be equal
Let r be their radius of each cone,
and ratio in their slant heights = 5:4
Let slant height of first cone (h1) = 5x
Then height of second cone (h2) = 4x

Question 12.
If the heights of two cones are in the ratio of 1 : 4 and the radii of their bases are in the ratio 4 : 1, then the ratio of their volumes is
(a) 1 : 2
(b) 2 : 3
(c) 3 : 4
(d) 4 : 1
Solution:
Ratio in the heights of two cones =1 : 4
and ratio in their radii of their bases = 4 : 1
Let height of the first cone = x
and height of the second cone = 4x
Radius of the first cone = 4y
and radius of the second cone = y

Question 13.
The slant height of a cone is increased by 10%. If the radius remains the same, the curved surface area is increased by
(a) 10%
(b) 12.1%
(c) 20%
(d) 21%
Solution:
Let r be radius and l be the slant height of a cone, then curved surface area = πrl
If slant height is increased by 10%, then

Question 14.
The height of a solid cone is 12 cm and the area of the circular base is 6471 cm2. A plane parallel to the base of the cone cuts through the cone 9 cm above the vertex of the cone, the area of the base of the new cone so formed is
(a) 9π cm2
(b) 16π cm2
(c) 25π cm2
(d) 36π cm2
Solution:
Height of a solid cone (h) = 12 cm
Area of circular base = 64π cm2

Question 15.

(a) 60
(b) 68
(c) 73
(d) 78
Solution:
In first case,
Let r be radius and h be height, in volume

Question 16.

(a) 8
(b) 0
(c) 4π
(d) 32π2
Solution:
h = height, S = curved surface area
V = volume of a cone
Let r be the radius of the cone, then

Question 17.

(a) 1 : 2
(b) 2 : 1
(c) 1 : 7
(d) 1 : 8
Solution:
∴ ∆PDC ~ ∆PBA (AA axiom)
and O’ is mid point of PO
