#### Solution

(i) Slant height (*l*) of cone = 14 cm

Let the radius of the circular end of the cone be *r*.

We know, CSA of cone = π*rl*

`(308)cm^2=(22/7xxr xx14)cm`

`rArr r=(308/44)cm=7cm`

Therefore, the radius of the circular end of the cone is 7 cm.

(ii) Total surface area of cone = CSA of cone + Area of base

= π*rl* + π*r*^{2}

`=[308+22/7xx(7)^2]cm^2`

= (308 + 154) cm^{2}

= 462 cm^{2}

Therefore, the total surface area of the cone is 462 cm^{2}.
