Formula used: Volume of a cylinder - $$\pi*R^2*H$$

Given: H = 8 | R =$$\frac{D}{2} = 4$$

Therefore, The volume is $$\pi*4^2*8 = 128*\pi$$(Option A) ,which is also the cubic inches of water the cylinder can hold.

CONCEPT: The quantities in CUBIC INCHES or CUBIC Centimeter etc represent VOLUME because volume has three dimensions therefore the result is in CUBIC units
CONCEPT: The quantities in SQUARE INCHES or SQUARE Centimeter etc represent AREA because Area has TWO dimensions therefore the result is in SQUARE units

Here the question is How many cubic inches of water can the cylinder hold?

i,e, We need to find the Volume of the Cylinder

Volume of Cylinder = πr^2h = π*(4^2)*8 = 128π

Let’s determine the volume of the cylinder:

volume = πr^2h

volume = π(4)^2(8) = 128π
