Increase in NTFS cluster size will decrease the volume size. Support or contradict this statement with proper logic.
Read the instructions carefully before sending your comments:

You are wrong.
Increase in ntfs cluster size will decrease volume size.
Saib how can decrease?
I disagree with your statement totally.
For example, using 64-KB clusters, the maximum NTFS volume size is 256 terabytes minus 64 KB. Using the default cluster size of 4 KB, the maximum NTFS volume size is 16 terabytes minus 4 KB.
look ntfs ka volume size 256 terabytes-64kb hai when its using 64 kb cluster .. if we use the cluster size of 4kb then the ntfs volume size will become 16tb-4kb .. means jitna bra cluster utni ziada space use o gi.
hence the volume size decreases when cluster size increases
yup..but what should be further added in it?
give some logic... Why you support 'Yes' or 'NO'
check this way...
An excessive discrepancy between the Size on disk value and the Size value is an indication that the default cluster size is too large for the average file size that you are storing on the volume. In this scenario, it is recommended that you decrease the cluster size.
Cluster is an allocation unit. If you create file lets say 1 byte in size, at least one cluster should be allocated on FAT file system. On NTFS if file is small enough, it can be stored in MFT record itself without using additional clusters.
When file grows beyond the cluster boundary, another cluster is allocated. It means that the bigger the cluster size, the more disk space is wasted, however, the performance is better.
so salma iqbal yes or No
NO cluster increase result in increase of volume
yep, its 100% correct. just write in ur own words.
