							No, the center of mass may not necessarily lie within the object. This is likely to happen when the object losses its geometrical symmetricity.
For example, in case of boomerang, the center of mass lies outside the body. This is because of the asymmetrical distribution of mass due to its shape and curves.

							No,the center of gravity of a solid body does not always lie within material of body. For example,center of gravity of hollow sphere, ring lie at center but there is no material of body.

Centre of mass would always lie within the material but centre of mass doesn't. For eg, the centre of mass of a uniform hollow sphere is at its peripheral region while centre of gravity is at the centre.
