Solution

## The correct option is C P floats in B and Q sinks in AIf solid object has higher density than liquid then it will sink in that liquid otherwise it will float. R.D. of liquid A = 0.75R.D. of liquid B = 1.0R.D. of object P = 0.6R.D. of object Q = 0.9P has R.D. less then both the liquids. so it will float in both the liquids. Q has R.D. more than liquid A, so it will sink in A.Q has R.D. less than liquid B, so it will float in B.
