This answer was edited.Given data,

Height of the solid cylinder = 14 cm

Diameter of the solid cylinder = 7 cm

Volume of cylinder= π× r² ×h

= 22/7 × 3.5² × 14

= 539 cm³

Volume of conical holes=[1/3] π × r² × h

=[1/3] × [22/7] × [2.1]² × 4

=18.48 cm³

There are two conical holes,

∴ 2×18.48

=36.96 cm³

Remaining volume = 539 – 36.96

=502.04 cm³

∴ Remaining volume of solid is 502.04 cm³
