    Answer:  C. The chunk of iron’s volume is smaller than the chunk of aluminum’s volume.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given: The mass of aluminum chunk = 10 kg

    In grams , the mass of aluminum chunk = 1000 g   [∵ 1 kg = 1000 g]

    The mass of iron chunk =10 g

    i.e The chunk of aluminum is more massive than the chunk of iron.

    Density of Aluminum chunk = 2.7\ g/cm^3

    Density of iron chunk = 7.9\ g/cm^3

    The formula of volume is given by :-

    \text{Volume}=\dfrac{\text{Mass}}{\text{Density}}

    \text{Volume of Aluminium chunk}=\dfrac{1000}{2.7}=370.37\ cm^3

    \text{Volume of Iron chunk}=\dfrac{10}{7.9}\approx 1.27\ cm^3

    Clearly, The chunk of iron’s volume is smaller than the chunk of aluminum’s volume.
