Answer: (1) 6 cm

Explanation:-
Formula –
The volume of the sphere = 4 pai r3/3
where, r = radius of the sphere,

The surface are of the sphere = 4 pai r2
Where, r = radius of the sphere.

According to the question,
4 pai r3/3 = 4 pai r2
r/3 = 1
r = 3

The diameter of the sphere = 2 x radius of the sphere
= 2 x 3 = 6 cm

Then, the diameter of the sphere is 6 cm.

Hence, the answer is (1) 6 cm.
