A) The water in tank B exerts a downward force on the sides of the tank.
B) The pressure exerted on the bottom of tank A is greater than for the other tanks.
C) The force exerted by the water on the bottom of tank B is ... the force exerted by the water on the bottom of tank A
D) The pressure at the bottom of tank B is ... the pressure at the bottom of tank C
E) The force due to the water on the bottom of tank B is .... the weight of the water in the tank
