due to the fact that adhessive forces between water and glass molecules is greater than that of among water molecules themselves,in the case of the liuid half immersed in water then it must be true that the adhessive forces between the water molecules is greater than that of between the liquid and water (other wise the liquid would have been mixed homogenously in water due to adhessive forces between water and liquid being more). So the surface of water at the liquid drop boundary bends
