I'm stuck on this:

The buoyant force acting on a submerged object is equal to:

A. The objects mass
B. The objects volume
C. The mass of the fluid displaced by the object
D. The weight of the fluid displaced by the object...

If I had to guess I would go with A or B

2. So maybe C then? Since it would be displacing the fluid to float
