Expert Answer:

Torque = MI x Angular Acceleration.

Angular Acceleration = Torque/MI

Hence lower the MI higher will be angular acceleration and higher will be the gain in speed.

The MI of solid cylinder MR2/2 is small compared to that of hollow spherer 2MR2/3.

Solid cylinder to acquire greater speed.
