 Answer (A) 142296     

Diameter of marble = 0.5 cm

Volume of marble

=\frac{4\pi r^{3}}{3}=\frac{4}{3}\times \frac{22}{7}\times \frac{1}{4} \times \frac{1}{4} \times \frac{1}{4}
                         = 11/168 cm^{3}
Edge of cube = 22 cm
Volume (V) =22\times 22 \times 22
Space occupied by marble = total volume - 1/8 th part of the volume

Number of marble

=\frac{space occupied}{volume of marble}
                              =\frac{7v\times 168}{8\times 11}
                            =\frac{7\times 22\times 22 \times 22 \times 168}{8\times11}
