Hello Student,
Please find the answer to your question
KEY CONCEPT :
When the stones were in the boat, the weight of stones were balanced by the buoyant force.
Vs ds = V d
V, Vs = volume of liquid and stone respectively
V, Vs = density of liquid and stone respectively
Since, ds > d ∴ Vs < V
Therefore when stones are put in water, the level of water falls.
Thanks
