Herwin, it's up to you to solve this problem. Those are the Rules at PF.

My apologise, I don't understand what do you mean by its up to me to solve these problems. Because there are different variations of their respective height,density, and area. I think there must be an specific answer for this question because it's a question from my test which is either a b c or d

This is plain English. What it says it what it means.

According to the Rules of PF (you did read those, didn't you?), posters to the HW forums must show an attempt at solution in order to receive help.

If you have studied what determines the pressure in a fluid at a given depth, then the answer to this question is quite simple to determine.

The only thing simpler is writing your name on the test paper.

If you had used the required homework template, you would have been prompted for an equation that might apply to your problem. What equation might that be?
