Expert Answer:

The pressure in a liquid is given by 
P equals rho g h
rho equals d e n s i t y space o f space t h e space l i q u i d
g equals space a c c e l e r a t i o n space d u e space t o space g r a v i t y
h equals d e p t h
As we go deeper into the liquid the weight of the liquid column above us increases which results in increase in pressure. Hence the pressure depends on the depth.
