Answer: (4) 62.5% 
Explanation:-
Formula-
The volume of cylinder = Pai r2h
According to the question,
Now, the volume of the cylinder = Pai(r/2)2 (h + h/2)
= Pai r2/4 (3h/2)
= Pai r23h/8
Change volume = Pai r2h – Pai r23h/8
= Pai (8r2h – 3r2h)/8
= Pai 5r2h/8
Change in percent = (Pai 5r2h/8) x 100/Pai r2h
= 5 x 100/8
= 62.5%
Hence, the answer is (4) 62.5%.
