Dear student,
(1) If we assume the height at which the wire has been joined is y m and the new length of the wire is x m. Then, using trigonometry, we would have:
,
Hence the length of the wire that was cut is equal to:m
(2) The total height of the builiding would be equal to the height above the window .
So, this comes out to be:

(3) For b = 3, we would have:

(4) The total volume would be equal to:

Hence the required weight would be equal to:

(5) Volume of a hemisphere is equal to

Hence, the volume of the cone would be equal to

Hence, the height of the cone would be equal to:

Thus the total surface area of the toy would be equal to:
