# If the height and the base area of a right circular cone are 5 cm and 48 sq.cm :

If the height and the base area of a right circular cone are 5 cm and 48 sq.cm respectively, then the volume of the cone is equal to

A. 240 cm³

B. 120 cm3

C. 80 cm3

D. 480 cm3

**Answer: (C) 80 cm^3**

**Solution:-**The base area of a cone = 48 sq. cm

The height of a cone = 5 cm

Then, volume of the cone = 48 x 5/3

= 16 x 5

= 80 cm^3

Hence, the correct answer is option (C) 80 cm ^3.
