This is not a GMAT question. For one, the wording is not precise, plus GMAT question would give the volume of the sphere formula, which is \(\frac{4}{3}\pi r^3\).

Anyway, since the volumes are the same, then \(\frac{4}{3}\pi (r_1)^3=\pi (r_2)^2 h\);

\(\frac{4}{3}\pi (r_1)^3=\pi (r_2)^2 *r_2*\frac{1125}{16}\);

\((\frac{r_1}{r_2})^3=\frac{3375}{64}\);

\((\frac{r_1}{r_2})^3=\frac{15^3}{4^3}\);

\(\frac{r_1}{r_2}=\frac{15}{4}\).

Answer: C.

This is not a GMAT question.


Hey Bunel. Sorry for that. But, this question was given by my local tutor. So, for what questions does GMAT provide formulae?
