a. 1:4   b. 4:25  c. 4:23   d. 1:6
Ans: 4:25
Volume of a cone = (1/3) * Pi * r2 *h
Ratio of volumes = (4 * 4* 1)/ (5 * 5 * 4) = 4: 25
222. A cylinder of height 14 cm has a volume of 1100 cm3 determine the base radius of the cylinder.
a. 10 cm   b. 7.5 cm  c. 5 cm  d. 2.5 cm
Ans: 5 cm
Volume of a cylinder = Pi * r2 * h
1100 = (22/7) * r2 * 14
r=5 cm
223. Find the time in which Rhett can cover a distance of 3 km running at a speed of 12m/minutes.
a. 4.16 hours  b. 4.10 hours   c. 4 hours   d. 4.25 hours
Ans: 4.10 hours
Convert given speed into km/hour
12m/minutes= ( 12 (1/1000))/1/60 = 12*60 / 1000 kmph
Time = distance / speed = 4.10 hours

224. Find the remainder when 83*85*87*88*91 is divided by 41.
a. 32    b. 31   c. 29   d. 34
Ans: 31
Divide individual terms with 41 find out remainder
That is (1 * 3 * 5 * 6 * 9)/41 = 31
