A./_\

B.\_/

C.|_|

The three tanks shown above are filled with water to an equal depth. All the tanks have an equal height. Tank A has the greatest surface area at the bottom, tank B the least and tank C the middle.

(Select T-True, F-False, G-Greater than, L-Less than, E-Equal to. If the first is F the second L and the rest G, enter FLGGGG).
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

I thought TFLEE, but that's wrong

1. How can water exert a downward force on the sides of Tank A?
