Solution

## The correct option is C Density of fluid A < Density of fluid B Since we know that the sinking and floating of a body in a liquid is due to the difference in their densities. If the density of the body is greater than the liquid then it sinks and vice-versa. So, the density of fluid B must be greater than iron and thus also greater than fluid A.
