Eva has two containers labeled A and B. The diameter of container A is 8 inches and the diameter of container B is 12 inches. If Eva pours the water from container A into container B, which will occur?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A. The volume of the water in container B will be greater than the volume of the water in container A.

B. The mass of the water in container B will be less than the mass of the water in container A.

C. The density of the water in container B will be less than the density of the water in container A.

D. The shape of the water in container B will be different than the shape of the water in container A.

I think your information is incomplete. You are giving only one dimension, the diameter. What else do you need to know in order to know the volume of each container?

I also think it is D. Because of the different diameters, regardless of height, and whether it overflows, the shape of the water must change to a different shape of cylinder.

Liquids change their shape to fit the container they are in, but keep the same volume. That is a definition of liquid.

B. could also be correct if container B is so much shorter than A that some of the water overflows. But that would be a special case.
