Expert Answer:

Yes. liquids exert pressure.
Pressure is force/unit area. At a given point in liquid , if we consider an area A, above the area if we have liquid column of heght h, then there is gravitational force due to the mass of liquid, i.e., A×h×ρ×g. This force divided by area gives the pressure ρ×g×h N/m2
