A cylinder is placed on V.P and the section plane is parallel to H.P cutting the solid into two equal parts the front view of the 1st part of cylinder will be _____________

A. circle

B. ellipse

C. rectangle

D. semi-circle

The question was posed to me by my college professor while I was bunking the class.

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

Correct choice is D. semi-circle

The best I can explain: Given the cylinder is placed on V.P on its base and the section plane is parallel to H.P cutting the solid into two equal parts. In this case the side view, front view shows the section plane as line cutting the cylinder into 2 halves and show rectangle and semicircle.
