Dear mikir

weight if body =36.67 g

weight of body in water =33.865 g

this reduction in weight is dut to boyancy force

Fb = 36.67 g -33.865 g

    = 2.805 g

but Fb=wait of water replace by body



V= 2.805cc

but this total volume

so volume of hollow part + volume of solid part =V=2.805 cc

for volume of solid part

  volume of solid part*density of gold=weight of body in air

       volume of solid part=36.670/19.3 

                                    =1.9 cc

 so volume of hollow part =2.805-1.9

                                    =.905 cc
