Radius of the base of a cone (R) = 3r
and height (H) = 3r Question 6.

(c) 3 : 4
(d) 4 : 1
Solution:
Ratio in the heights of two cones =1 : 4
and ratio in their radii of their bases = 4 : 1
Let height of the first cone = x
and height of the second cone = 4x
Radius of the first cone = 4y
and radius of the second cone = y  Question 13.
The slant height of a cone is increased by 10%. If the radius remains the same, the curved surface area is increased by
(a) 10%
(b) 12.1%
(c) 20%
(d) 21%
Solution:
Let r be radius and l be the slant height of a cone, then curved surface area = πrl
If slant height is increased by 10%, then Question 14.
The height of a solid cone is 12 cm and the area of the circular base is 6471 cm2. A plane parallel to the base of the cone cuts through the cone 9 cm above the vertex of the cone, the area of the base of the new cone so formed is
(a) 9π cm2
(b) 16π cm2
(c) 25π cm2
(d) 36π cm2
Solution:
Height of a solid cone (h) = 12 cm
Area of circular base = 64π cm2  Question 15.
