The curved surface area of a cylindrical pillar is 264 m^{2} and its volume is 924 m^{3}. Find the ratio of its diameter to its height.

**Answer: Option B**

\(\frac{\pi r^{2}h}{2\pi rh} = \frac{924}{264}\Rightarrow r= \left(\frac{924}{264}\times2\right) = 7m\)

And, \(2\pi rh\Rightarrow h= \left(264\times\frac{7}{22}\times\frac{1}{2}\times\frac{1}{7}\right) = 6m.\)

So, Required ratio = \(\frac{2r}{h}=\frac{14}{6}= 7:3.\)
