Archimedes principle works when the body is

  1. Partially immersed in a liquid
  2. Fully immersed in a liquid
  3. Both A and B
  4. This principle has nothing to do with the level of immersion of the body
Correct Answer: Option(c)
Solution: Archimedes' Principle states that buoyant force acting on body upwards is equal in magnitude of the weight of liquid it displaces. Depending upon how much the body is immersed in liquid, and hence how much the weight of liquid is displaced, the buoyant force varies.
