### Solution:

It is given that,
The size of the paper is 30 cm by 18 cm.
(Cylinder 1) By rolling lengthwise.
Height of cylinder 1 (h1) = 18  , diameter of the cylinder 1 = 30 cm
Since the circumference of the base of the cylinder is  . So,     Thus, the volume (V1) is,
(Cylinder II) By rolling breadthwise.  Height of cylinder 2  , diameter of cylinder 2 = 18
Since the circumference of the base of the cylinder is  . So,
Thus, the volume (V2) is,
Now, divide   by  .
$\frac{{V}_{1}}{{V}_{2}}=\frac{\frac{22}{7}×\frac{105}{22}×\frac{105}{22}×18}{\frac{22}{7}×\frac{63}{22}×\frac{63}{22}×30}$
$=\frac{105×105×18}{63×63×30}$
$=\frac{198450}{119070}$
$=\frac{5}{3}$      Thus, the ratio of the two cylinders is  .
Therefore, option 4 is correct.
