Solution

The correct option is A No change
The volume of the block is V=5×5×10=250 cm3
When the block is immersed in water,
the volume of displaced water=volume of the block(V)
No matter how the block is immersed, the volume of the block is not going to change.
Therefore, the level of water will not change if the block is immersed with the 10 cm side kept vertical.
