the example of cylindrical source is the line of light. it emits cylindrical expanding wave fronts.
intensity I=P/area ,
P is the power of source which is constant
Hence  I1/area
area of cylinder , a=2πrh  ,  (h=height of cylinder) ,
therefore intensity of wave ,
  I1/2πrh ,
which implies I1/r
 
we have , IA2  (A= amplitude)
 
we get ,  A2 1/r ,
 A1/sqt(r)
Hence, last option is correct
