Option A: 

11

Option B: 

14

Option C: 

16

Option D: 

18

waecmaths solution: 

$\begin{align}  & V=\pi {{r}^{2}}h \\ & V=\tfrac{22}{7}\times 14cm\times 14cm\times 18cm \\ & V=11080c{{m}^{3}} \\ & 1000c{{m}^{3}}=1litre \\ & V=\frac{11080}{1000}litres=11.080litres \\ & \text{To the nearest litres }V=11litres \\\end{align}$
