ANSWER: C 
The radius of both the cones and the cylinder is 2. The height of the cone is 4 inches. (Please note, superscript shows as italic green.)
Find the volume of one cone: V = 1/3 πr2h = 1/3 x 3.14 x 22x 4 ≈ 16.7 cu in.
Multiply by 2 to find the volume of both cones: 16.7 x 2 = 33.4 cu in.
Find the volume of the cylinder: V – πr2 ≈ 3.14 x 22 x 8 ≈ 100.48 cu in.
Add to find the total volume: 33.4 + 100.48 = 133.88 cu in, which rounds to 134 cu in.
