Solution

## The correct option is B Weight of sea water = Weight of river water1:1 (in each case the weight of water displaced will be equal to the weight of man).According to Archimedes Principle the volume of water displaced is equal to the weight of the body.Since, the weight in both the case is the same, so the weight of water displaced in sea water and in river water will also be same.
