Let us suppose the radius and height of can X are r and h respectively. So the radius and height of can Y will be 2r and 2h respectively.
Volume of X = 3.14 * r^2 * h
Volume of Y = 3.14 * (2r)^2 * 2h = 8 * 3.14 * r^2 * h = 8 times of X's volume.
Since X is sold for $2, and Y is filled to only half of its capacity, Y will be sold for 4 * $2 ( half of Y's volume = 8/2 * X's volume ) = $8.
Hence E is the answer.
Please provide Kudos if you like my explanation.
