How to create a tapered cylinder

I'd greatly appreciate any assistance with for a novice who is trying to create a "tapered cylinder". That is, I want to make a cylindrical object where the diameter of one end differs from the other. Will I have to start with a cylinder (or cone) primitive and somehow modify this? Thank you very much in advance, and a belated happy New Year to everyone.

Option A)
Select the top face > Modify > Soft transform

Change the falloff, and play around with the different settings:

Option B)
Select the top face > Face Transform

Pull the face up, click and drag on the white square to make it
bigger/smaller, then use plane cut to cut off any excess.

Thanks, this works perfectly! I wanted to make an extension adapter to a large mouth funnel (think canning and fruit preserves) to be able to use it for for smaller jars, but have the big opening to reduce spillage.
