4 new circle surfaces were created.

hence 4 x π(2)^2 = 16π

My guess is c.

New surface areas added are the circular bases and tops.
when cut in 3 pieces it adds 4 circular areas each of radius 2.
Therefor the new added surface area will be = 4*π*r^2 = 4*4*π = 16*π

Please remember that the surface area of cylinder created by height will not change
But 4 new circle surfaces were created hence 4 x π(2)^2 = 16π

So answer is C
