"A rectangular steel container has three equal dimensions of 8 inches" means that the container is a cube. Now, cylinder to have maximum possible volume it should have maximum possible diameter and height, so a diameter equal to a side of the cube, so d=8 (radius=4) and a height also equal to a side of the cube, so height=8: \(volume_{cylinder}=\pi{r^2}h=128\pi\).

Answer: C.

All dimensions are same of the rectangle, it means its a cube

The base would be a square

Maximum possible diameter of a inscribed circle (the cylinder) is the side of the square = 8

Radius = 4

Height = 8

\(Area = \pi r^2 h = \pi * 4^2 * 8 = 128\pi\)

Answer = C
