    Answer is (3): 1/9

    Explanation:-
    According to the question,
    pai r2h/3 = pai r (h2 + r2)1/2
     r h/3 = (h2 + r2)1/2

    Square on both side,
    r2h2/9 = h2 + r2
    1/9 = (h2 + r2)/r2h2
    1/ 9 = h2/r2h2 + r2/h2r2
    1/9 = 1/r2 + 1/h2

    Then, the value of (1/r2) + (1/h2) is 1/9

    Hence, the answer is (3) 1/9.
