Solution

## The correct option is A Both A’ and B’ are true statements Both A and B are true statements. A: As the depth increases the weight of the column above it increases thus the pressure increases. B: When a body is immersed fully or partially in a fluid, it experiences an upward force that is equal to the weight of the fluid displaced by it. Upthrust = Volume of body × density of liquid × acceleration due to gravity.
