Question: What is the volume of the largest box with a square base that can fit into a cylindrical canister with volume 25π?

To answer this question, we need only the radius or height of cylinder because we have the volume of cylinder 25π already.

For any specific cylinder the box of maximum volume can be derived as square base with diagonal equal to diameter and height equal to height of cylinder


Statement 1: The cylinder has a radius of \(\sqrt{5}\)

SUFFICIENT

Statement 2; The height of the cylinder is 5

SUFFICIENT

Answer: Option D
