Solution

## The correct option is C. Remain sameFor floating of a block, the buyout force balances its weight,Fb=mgVfρfg=Vbρbg..................(i) where, Vf = volume of fluid displacedVb = Volume of blockVb=1500 cm3 remain the same always, no matter which side is in the vertical position while floating.Hence, from Eq.(i) Vf = constant∴ The level of water will remain constant in the container as the volume of liquid displaced will be equal in both cases.
