A cylinder is placed on V.P on its base and section plane is inclined to V.P and perpendicular to H.P cutting all the generators of the solid the section gives ______________

A. parabola

B. circle

C. rectangle

D. ellipse

I had been asked this question in quiz.

Question is taken from Sections of Cylinders topic in portion Section of Solids of Engineering Drawing

Right option is D. ellipse

Best explanation: If a cylinder is been cut by plane which is inclined to base or axis if it cuts all the generator the section formed will be ellipse and if the plane cuts less than half of generators the section formed will be parabola.
