    Answer: (3) 1980

    Explanation:-
    The deep of the well = 22.5 m
    The diameter of the well = 7 m
    Therefore, the radius of the well = 7/2 = 3.5 cm

    Then, the curved surface area of the well = 2 x 22 x 7 x 22.5/7 x 2
    = 22.5 x 22
    = 495 sq. m

    The cost of plastering the inner curved surface at Rs.4 per sq meter
    Then, the total cost of plastering the inner curved surface of the well = 495 x 4
    = Rs. 1980.

    Hence, the correct answer is option (3) Rs. 1980.
