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

A. parabola

B. circle

C. rectangle

D. ellipse

I had been asked this question in semester exam.

This key question is from Sections of Cylinders in section Section of Solids of Engineering Drawing

The correct answer is C. rectangle

The best explanation: Cylinder is formed by rotating the rectangle about one of its sides which is said to axis further. So if the cutting plane is parallel to axis the section formed is rectangle and if plane is perpendicular to axis it gives circle.
