Is the buoyant force on a submerged object equal to the weight of the object itself or equal to the weight of the fluid displaced by the object?

When we submerge an object in a fluid, an upward force is experienced by the object. The fluid applies this force on the object, which causes it to rise, and we call this force buoyant force. The magnitude of this force is precisely equal to the amount of weight of the liquid displaced.
