Dear student,
 
This is governed by the law of definite proportion. Carbon and oxygen combine in 3:8 ratio. So 11 g of carbon dioxide is formed. 
 
Hence, in the latter case too, only 8 g of O2​ will be reacted with 3g of carbon (because carbon is the limiting reagent here ) to form 11g of CO2​ and  42 g of oxygen will remain unreacted.
