Let a be the length of the edge of the cube.
Largest cylinder is inscribed in it. So,
height of the cylinder = a
Radius of the cylinder = a/2 [Since, radius = a]
volume of the cube = a3
volume of the cylinder = ? r2 h = ? a3/4
Ratio of the volumes = a3: ? a3/4 = 1/4?
Similarly, you can calculate the ratio of the surface areas.
