Solution

## The correct option is C the air pressure inside the bottle is more than the pressure at its mouth. The air pressure inside the bottle is more than the pressure at its mouth because the air near the mouth moves faster (pressure of air reduces when it moves fast-Bernoulli's principle). So a paper ball kept near the mouth of a plastic bottle will be pushed out due to this pressure difference.
