D > F > E

Work Step by Step

$P = P_0 + \rho~g~h$ $P$ is the pressure $P_0$ is the atmospheric pressure $\rho$ is the density of the liquid $h$ is the depth below the surface For all six points A to F, $P_0$ is the same. Therefore, a point that is located deeper under the surface will have a higher pressure because the value of $h$ is greater. We can rank the three points in order from largest pressure to smallest pressure: D > F > E
