In part A, I understand that since we are considering the person as a cylinder, the equation for moment of inertia will include (1/2)MR^2. What I can't seem to understand is where did 2MR^2 come from and why we didn't include the moment of inertia of the arm(which is a rod).

In part B, I understand the rest of the moment of inertia equation but I am confused where did m(1l/2 + R)^2 come from?
