Solution

## The correct option is A 2R√15Let R1 be the radius of the disc formed and also mass of the disc and the sphere must be same.Moment of inertia of the disc about an axis passing through the centre and perpendicular to the plane, I′=12MR21Moment of inertia of the disc about an axis passing through the edge and perpendicular to the plane, I′′=I′+MR21=32MR21For sphere: I=25MR2Given: I′′=I32MR21=25MR2⟹R1=2R√15
