Solution

The correct option is A

height of the liquid column


Like solids, liquids also exert pressure on the container in which they the. A solid exerts pressure only in the surface at its bottom. But a liquid exerts pressure not only on the surface of its container at the bottom but also sideways, that is, in all directions.

The pressure at a point in a liquid depends on the following two factors:

1. The height of the liquid column.

Liquid pressure increases with the height of the liquid column.

2. the density of the liquid.

Liquid pressure increases with the increase in density of the liquid.
