State whether given statement is True or False Because the buoyant force acts in a direction opposite the force of gravity, the net force acting on an object submerged in a fluid, such as water, is smaller than the object's weight.

The correct option is A True Answer is A. The weight of the object in the fluid is reduced, because of the force acting on it, which is called upthrust. In simple terms, the principle states that the buoyant force on an object is equal to the weight of the fluid displaced by the object, or the density of the fluid multiplied by the submerged volume times the gravitational constant, g. Thus, among completely submerged objects with equal masses, objects with greater volume have greater buoyancy. Hence, the statement is true.
