Hi!
Here is the answer to your query.

The largest 4-digit perfect cube can be obtained by cubing some natural numbers at random.
Let’s take the number say 10.
103 = 1000 which is very less than largest 4-digit number
Let’s now take 15.
153 = 3375 which is still less than largest 4-digit number
Now let us take 20.
203 = 8000
Now, let’s  take 21.
213 = 9261
Now take 22.
223 = 10648 which is greater than largest 4-digit number (9999)
So, we can conclude that 9621 is the largest 4-digit perfect cube.

Cheers!

i know adout 5 digit no.

The potentially largest number is 99,999. Take the cube root of 99,999 and you get 46.4... Take 46^3 and you get = 97336,
