Solution(By Examveda Team)

$$\eqalign{ & {\text{External}}\,{\text{radius}} = 4\,cm \cr & {\text{Internal}}\,{\text{radius}} = 3\,cm \cr & {\text{Volume}}\,{\text{of}}\,{\text{iron}} \cr & = \left( {\frac{{22}}{7} \times \left[ {{{\left( 4 \right)}^2} - {{\left( 3 \right)}^2}} \right] \times 21} \right)c{m^3} \cr & = \left( {\frac{{22}}{7} \times 7 \times 1 \times 21} \right)c{m^3} \cr & = 462\,c{m^3} \cr & \therefore {\text{Weight}}\,{\text{of}}\,{\text{iron}} = \left( {462 \times 8} \right)gm \cr & \,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\, = 3696\,gm \cr & \,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\, = 3.696\,kg \cr} $$
