    Step 1

    The picture below shows the cylinder with the radius (R) of 2cm, and the height (H) of 7cm.

    cylinder with R=2cm and H=7cm

    Step 2

    Since R and H have the same unit, we can just calculate the volume of this cylinder as shown:

    V = pi r squared multiples by H

    Step 3

    Now, the calculated number 88, is meaningless unless we include the unit for it. Since R and H units are in cm, the unit for volume will be cm3. Hence:

    V = 88cm3

    Step 4

    Clearly, the answer is D.
