#### Solution

Inner radius of the well, r = `4.2/2`= 2.1 m

Depth of the well, h = 10 m

∴ Inner surface area of the well = 2πrh = 2 x `22/7` x 2.1 x 10 = 132 m^{2}

Rate of plastering = Rs 52/m^{2}

∴ Cost of plastering the well from inside

= Inner surface area of the well × Rate of plastering

= 132 × 52

= Rs 6,864

Thus, the inner surface area of the well is 132 m^{2} and the cost of plastering the well from inside is Rs 6,864.
