A spherical ball was cut into eight equal pieces along the same axis (as shown in figure). The total surface area of the eight pieces is how much more, in square units, than the original surface area of the spherical ball? [ The surface area of the sphere = 4ΠR2]
(1) The diameter of the spherical ball = 10 units.
(2) The total surface area of eight halves is 3 times that of the original surface area.

Given : A spherical ball was cut into eight equal pieces along the same axis (as shown in figure).

DI Question : The total surface area of the eight pieces is how much more, in square units, than the original surface area of the spherical ball? [ The surface area of the sphere = 4ΠR2]

So, total surface area of one piece = 1/8*(4ΠR^2) + 1/2 ΠR^2 + 1/2 ΠR^2 = 3/2 ΠR^2
Total surface area of 8 pieces = 8 * 3/2 ΠR^2 = 12 ΠR^2
So, total surface area of the eight pieces is more, in square units, than the original surface area of the spherical ball by 12 ΠR^2 - 4 ΠR^2 = 8 ΠR^2.

Statement (1) : The diameter of the spherical ball = 10 units.
Since Diameter is given, hence radius is known. So we can calculate the value.
SUFFICIENT

Statement (2) : The total surface area of eight halves is 3 times that of the original surface area.
This doesn't add any extra information and hence we can't calculate the value.
SUFFICIENT

Answer A

ans is A

Total surface area of each piece= 4πr^2/8 + πr^2
So total surface area of eight pieces = 4πr^2+8 πr^2

difference= 8 πr^2
Statement 1 gives r which is sufficient.
