Solution

## The correct option is C remain constantFor floating of block, Fb=mg Vfρfg=Vbρbg ...(i) where, Vf→ volume of fluid displaced Vb→Volume of block Vb=1500 cm3 remains same always, no matter which side is in vertical position while floating. Hence, from Eq.(i), Vf=constant. ∴ Level of water will remain constant in the container as the volume of liquid displaced will be equal in both cases.
