Solution

## The correct option is A 215MR2According to parallel axis theorem, I=Io+Md2 Momemt of inertia of farthest sphere is I1=25M(R2)2+M(2R)2 Momemt of inertia of nearest sphere is I2=25M(R2)2 Momemt of inertia of massless rod is I3=0 Moment of inertia of system is given by, I=I1+I2+I3 I=25M(R2)2+M(2R)2+25M(R2)2=4MR2+15MR2=215MR2.
