a) 100 kg

b) 60 kg

c) 100/6 kg

Question : 5 [NDA ]

Two identical blocks of ice, A and B, float in water as shown in the figure given below. Which one among the following statements in this regard is correct?

a) Block B displaces a greater volume of water since its submerged end has a greater area in water

b) Block A displaces a greater volume of water since its submerged end is lower in the water.

c) Block A displaces a greater volume of water since the pressure acts on a smaller bottom area ce of Gravity, Solids & Fluids A-27

d) The two blocks displace equal volumes of water since they have the same specific gravity and same mass
