RRB NTPC - Problems on Volumes

1.

The radius of the cylinder and cone are equal. find its volumes ratio: 

   A.) 1 : 3
   B.) 3 : 1
   C.) 2 : 1
   D.) 3 : 2

Answer: Option 'B'

radius of the cylinder = radius of the cone 
πr2h = 1/3 πr2h 1 : 1/3 
3 : 1

2.

The lateral surface area of cube is 100 sq.units. find the volume of cube?

   A.) 122 m3
   B.) 135 m3
   C.) 125 m3
   D.) 120 m3

Answer: Option 'C'

Lateral surface = 4 a2 = 100 sq.units 
a2 = 25 
a = 5. 
Cube volume = a3 => 125 m3

3.

The lateeral surface area of cuboid length 12 m, breadth 8 m and height 6m

   A.) 230 m3
   B.) 240 m3
   C.) 230 m2
   D.) 240 m2

Answer: Option 'D'

Cuboid lateral surface = 2h(l+b) 
= 2 × 6 (20) = 240 m2

4.

The radius of a cone is 4 m, height 5 m. Find the curved surface area?

   A.) 4 units
   B.) 5 units
   C.) 6 units
   D.) 3 units

Answer: Option 'B'

Cone curved surface area = πrl = 22/7 × 4 × 5 = 440/7 = 62 6/7 
Slant height (l) = √r2+h2 = √16+9 = √25 = 5

5.

Find the volume of cuboid 15 m length, 9 m breadth and 2 m height. 

   A.) 1420 m3
   B.) 1440 m2
   C.) 1424 m3
   D.) 1440 m3

Answer: Option 'D'

Cuboid volume => l × b × h => 15 × 12 × 8 = 1440 m3
