Solution by Steps
step 2
The rectangle has a length of 4 units and a width of 1 unit. When rotating the rectangle about line mm, the width becomes the radius of the resulting 3D object
step 3
Since the width is 1 unit, the resulting 3D object will have a radius of 1 unit
step 4
The length of the rectangle does not affect the radius of the 3D object but determines the height of the cylinder
step 5
Therefore, the 3D object formed is a cylinder with a radius of 1 unit, not a cone, and the diameter is twice the radius, which would be 2 units, not 8 units

Key Concept
3D object formation by rotation
When a 2D shape is rotated about a line, the distance from the line to the farthest point on the shape becomes the radius of the resulting 3D object. In this case, rotating a rectangle about a line parallel to its width forms a cylinder with the width as its radius.
