(A) \(6\pi - 16\)

(B) \(9\pi - 16\)

(C) \(160 - 30\pi\)

(D) \(60\pi - 160\)

Area of cylinder is Pi r^h

=Pi*3*3*10
=90Pi


Area of cuboid = l*b*h
=4*4*10 = 160

Volume unoccupied = 90Pi-160
Hence the answer

Here,
we are required to find the volume of the un occupied portion so in that case let us take out the volume of the rectangular solid and cylinder

Volume of the rectangular solid = \(Length * Width * Height = 4 * 4 * 10 =160\)

And Total Volume of the Cylinder = \(\pi * Radius^2 * Height = \pi * 3^2 * 10 = 90\pi\)

Therefore the volume of the unoccupied portion of the cylinder = Total Volume of the Cylinder - Volume of the rectangular solid =\(\pi * 3^2 * 10 = 90\pi - 160\)
