I(solid shaft)= π D^4/64.
I(hollow shaft)= π (D^4-d^4)/64.
So, D^4/(D^4-d^4) is the answer.

Option A is correct.

For solid shaft:
Tmax = (π/ 16) τmax D3.

For a hollow shaft:
Tmax = (π/ 16) τmax (D4 - d4)/D.

Deflection for UDL = (w/L)*(L^4/8EI).
Deflection of Pt. Load= wL^3/3EI.
Max. Deflection = -(5/24)*(wL^3/EI).

M= σ *Z = π *d^3* σ /32 (for circular).
