Solution

## The correct option is D At the mid point on the axis of cylinderCentre of gravity means a point from which the weight of a body or system may be considered to act. In uniform gravity it is the same as the centre of mass. For regular shaped bodies it lies at the centre of the that particular body. Hence for a cylinder centre of gravity lies at the midpoint of the axis of the cylinder.
