Solution

## The correct option is D decreases, the buoyant force decreases.Buoyancy is the tendency to rise or float in a fluid. The upward force exerted on objects submerged in fluids is called the buoyant force. The formula for buoyant force is ⟹F=ρvg=mg Where ρ is the density, v is the volume, and m is the mass of the displaced fluid. 'g' is the acceleration due to gravity =9.8 m s−2. So, the denser the fluid is, the greater the buoyancy and the buoyant force and vice versa.
