If the moment of inertia of a disc about an axis tangential and parallel to the surface is I.Then find the moment of inertia about the axis tangential but perpendicular to the surface in terms of the I?

\[\begin {array} {1 1} (a)\;\frac{6}{5}\;I & \quad (b)\;\frac{3}{4}\;I \\ (c)\;\frac{3}{2}\;I & \quad  (d)\;\frac{5}{4}\;I \end {array}\]

Parallel axis theorem:
$I= \large\frac{MR^2}{4}$$-MR^2$
$\quad= \large\frac{5}{4}$$MR^2$
$I= \large\frac{MR^2}{2}$$+MR^2$
$\quad= \large\frac{3}{2}$$MR^2$
$I'= \large\frac{5}{4} \times \frac{4}{5} \bigg(\frac{3}{2}\bigg)$$MR^2$
$\qquad= \large\frac{6}{5}$$I$
