  1. two ends at pi*2.1^2 each is 27.71 cm^2
    the curved side is 2 pi*2.1*8.8 = 116.11 cm^2

    I agree with your answer, but it does not seem like quite enough.

  2. Ignoring any overlap which you will obviously need, and ignoring any loss of paper ....
    surface area = 2 circles + 1 rectangle
    = 2(πr^2) + 2πrh
    = 2(4.41π) + 4.2(8.8)π
    = 143.82
    I don't see that answer , the closest is your choice of 132, but that would not cover the can.
    Poor choice of answers, unless there is a typo
