Solution

## The correct option is A ML212Given, length of the rod is L and mass of the rod is M As we know that, Iz of a rod is given as ML212 So, MOI of the two rod shown will be (2×Iz), which is ML26 Now, from the perpendicular axis theorem we have Iz=Ix+Iy and due to symmetry, Ix=Iy ⇒ Iz=2Ix or Ix=Iy=Iz2 Hence, MOI of the cross about the bisector will be (ML26)2=ML212
