a flower floats on the surface of lake water. its level above the lake surface is 5.5 cm. then a sudden gust of wind comes and flower sinks 10 cm far from its original point, what is the depth of lake at the point where the flower was floating

• arithmetic (incomplete) -

Does the flower sink to the bottom of the lake? If so,
