The image has been clipped off! Please post the complete problem. You may want to type in the problem statement.

3. I can't determine the shape, from the image alone. The bottom part may be a right circular cylinder, but the sides do not appear parallel to me, so I'm not sure.

As stated above, the sides don't look parallel.
But if they are parallel, the volume = volume of a cylinder + half the volume of a sphere.
Height h = 10cm.
Volume of a cylinder = πr2 * h. Where h = height
Volume of a sphere " (4/3) * πr3.

So volume of shape = volume of cylinder + [ (1/2) * volume of sphere]
Because half the sphere is inside the cylinder so we don't want to count that twice
