Solution

## The correct option is B The air pressure in the bottle is greater than the outside pressure.As we press the bottle, the air pressure inside the bottle becomes more than the pressure outside. Thus, a paper ball kept near the mouth of the bottle will be pushed out due to this pressure difference.
