KEY CONCEPT :
When the stones were in the boat, the weight of stones were balanced by the buoyant force.
Vs ds = Vd
V, Vs = volume of liquid and stone respectively
d,ds = volume of liquid and stone respectively
Since, ds > d ∴ Vs < V
Therefore when stones are put in water, the level of water falls.
