    Answer: (2) 16 meters

    Explanation:-
    The side of cube = 1 m
    Then, the volume of the cube = 100 x 100 x 100 cm cube
    The number of cube of 25 cm cut from the 1 meter solid cube = 100 x 100 x 100/25 x 25 x 25
     = 4 x 4 x 4 
     = 64 

    Then, the height of the column = 64/4
     = 16 meters.

    Hence,the answer is (2) 16 meters.
