Solution

## The correct option is A 523.53 cm3 Given, Radius of each conical depression = r = 0.5 cm Height of each conical depression = h' = 1.4 cm Volume of wood in the entire stand = Volume of cuboid - volume of 4 identical conical depression We know, volume of a cuboid is length × breadth × height and volume of a cone is 13πr2h′. Therefore, volume of wood in entire stand =(l×b×h)−(4×13πr2h′) =(15×10×3.5)−(4×13×227×0.5×0.5×1.4) =525−1.467 =523.53 cm3
