#### Solution

$\text{ Let r be the radius of the circular cylinder } .$
$\text{ Height, h = 10 . 5 cm }$
$\text{ Area of the curved surface, } S_1 = 2\pi r h$
$\text{ Sum of the areas of its two circular faces, } S_2 = 2\pi r^2$
$\text{ According to question } :$
$3 S_2 = 2 S_1$
$3 \times 2 \pi r^2 = 2 \times 2\pi rh$
$6r = 4h$
$3r = 2h$
$r = \frac{2}{3} \times 10 . 5 cm$
$= 7 cm$

Is there an error in this question or solution?
