Answer: (1) 60%

Explanation:-
Let the height of the right circular cylinder be h m and radius be r cm.
Then, volume of the circular cylinder = Pi r^2 h.

Value of the Pi is constant so all the effect depends on radius and height.

Let intial volume was 100.
100 = 50% down radius effect => 50 ==50% down radius effect => 25 == 60% up height effect = 40.

Now, 100 become 40, it means there is 60% decremented in volume.

Hence, the correct answer is option (1) 60%.
