Let the mass of bigger sphere be M with rafius R. Then the mass of smaller sphere with radius R/2 is M/4.
Let the centre of the big sphere which is its centre of mass be the origin O. Then the centre of mass of the small sphere is at a distance R/2 from O.
When the small sphere is cut out, let the C.M. of the remaining portion shifts to P. Mass of remaining portion = 3M/4.
From conservation of centre of mass : 
C.M. of remaining portion = C.M. of big sphere + C.M. of the small sphere.
=> \frac{3M}{4}*(-OP) = M*OO + \frac{M}{4}*\frac{R}{2}
=> OP = -\frac{R}{6}
So, the centre of mass of the remaining portion shifts to \frac{R}{6} from tge centre of the circle.
