Answer

We can rank the densities of the objects in order, from largest to smallest: A, C, B

Work Step by Step

The fraction of an object's volume that is submerged in a liquid depends on the density of the object. If an object has a higher density, then a higher fraction of the volume will be submerged. Object A has the highest fraction of its volume submerged, so object A has the highest density. Object B has the smallest fraction of its volume submerged, so object B has the smallest density. We can rank the densities of the objects in order, from largest to smallest: A, C, B
