    Answer: (3) 300

    Solution:-
    The dimensions of wax bock = 60 cm, 35 cm and 22 cm
    Then, the volume wax block = 60 x 35 x 22
    = 46200 cm3

    The diameter of candle = 7 cm
    Then, the radius of candle = 7/2 = 3.5 cm
    The height of cylindrical candle = 4 cm

    So, the volume of a candle = 22 x (3.5)2 x 4/7
    = 22 x 3.5 x .5 x 4
    = 154 cm3

    Then, number of candles in a wax block = 46200/154
    = 300

    So, the number of cylindrical candles that can be made with diameter 7 cms and height 4 cms is 300.

    Hence, the correct answer is option (3) 300.
