    Answer: (d) 440 m 

    Solution:-
    The radius of a conical tent = 7 meter
    The height of a conical tent = 24 meter
    Then, the slant height of the cone = sqrt. (7^2 + 24^2)
    = sqrt. (49 + 576)
    = sqrt.625
    = 25 meter

    Formula-
    The surface area of conical tent = pai x r x l
    Where, l = slant height, r = radius of the cone & pai = constant. 

    Then,  the surface area of the conical tent = 22 x 7 x 25/7
    = 550   m^2

    length of the 1.25 meter wide cloth = 550/1.25
    = 440  m

    Hence, the correct answer is option (d) 440 m.
