You mean the answer is a)?

Cannot be.

A dictionanary says a cuboid is a rectangular parallelepiped. So it looks like any box of six rectangular faces. (A square is also a rectangular, by the way).

So the volume is length*width*height.

If all those 3 dimensions are doubled, then the original volume is doubled only according to your book?
