Only base radius is required to calculate the maximum volume of the cube.
So, A) is the answer.

Diameter d> Height h
The largest possible cube shall have each area diagonal = diameter of the cylinder.
S1 - $$\pi r^2$$=25$$\pi$$
r=5. We can find each edge of cube with the help of diagonal.
Sufficient

S2 - h=10; We need to know the radius.
Insufficient.
