Can someone explain this question in detail ?
I've read the official solution but still not quite sure what it is trying to say.

The question is asking for the height is it not? All we know is the # of cylinders that can fit on the face defined by the length and width.

18/9 = 2 <-- diameter

9 x 5 = 45

Height can be anything though...

Can anyone please let me know.. in GMAT cylinder questions should we always assume upright cylinders or should we consider horizontal( slanting) cylinders also?
