Cylinder A and cylinder B are both right circular cylinders that are filled with unknown amounts of water. If cylinder B is completely filled with water and poured into cylinder A, what fraction of cylinder A will be filled with water? (Note: Diagram is not drawn to scale)
1) Cylinders A and B have equal bases.
2) The height of cylinder B is half the height of cylinder A.

1) Cylinders A and B have equal bases.
2) The height of cylinder B is half the height of cylinder A.


Volume of Water in a cylinder \(= π*r^2*h\)

Question: what fraction of cylinder A will be filled with water = Volume of Cylinder B / Volume of Cylinder A \(= π*r_B^2*h_B / π*r_A^2*h_A\)?

To find what fraction is Cylinder B of Cylinder A we need
1) Ratio of the radie of cylinder A and B
2) Ratio of the Heights of cylinder A and B

In addition we need the amount of water that the two cylinders carry in beginning. (the highlighted part)

Statement 1: Cylinders A and B have equal bases

i.e. \(r_a = r_b\) but since we don't know the ratio of heights therefore
NOT SUFFICIENT

Statement 2: The height of cylinder B is half the height of cylinder A.

i.e. \(h_B / h_A = 1 / 2\) but since we don't know the ratio of Radie therefore
NOT SUFFICIENT

Combining the two statements
\(h_B / h_A = 1 / 2\) and \(r_a = r_b\) But

The unknown amount of water that the two cylinders have are still unknown hence

NOT SUFFICIENT

Answer: Option E

Haha GMATinsight you fell right into the trap. Nowhere in the question have they mentioned initial levels of cylinder A, it says' the amout is unknown' So the answer is E.
