The relative density of a solid is 0.6. It floats in water with: a)whole of its volume inside water b)60% of its volume inside water c)60% of its volume outside water d)40% of its volume inside water

Relative density of solid is 0.6. That is, its density is 60% of the denssity of water.
Thus, when it is placed in water, the solid will balance itself when 60% of its volume is under water, or 40% of its volume is outside water.
Thus, option (b) is correct.
