The wheel makes one revolution in 10 sec.....it is at 4 ft  at 7.5 sec  and again at 4 ft, 10 seconds later

So...the first statement is false

At  0 sec.....the loading height is 34 ft....but the lowest height is at 4 ft

So....the second statement isn't true, either

The third statement is true

The last statement is also true....the  max height is 64 and the minimum is 4 ft

So....the radius is  ( 64 - 4) / 2   =  60/2  =  30 ft
