The Boat Puzzle

By Anupum Pant

I remember solving this problem when I was in the twelfth grade. However, I no longer remember how I did it. Nor do I remember the answer. The boat puzzle goes like this.

What if you are in a boat that’s floating in water (a small body of water) and have a rock in your hand. You choose to drop the rock into the water. The rock, as they all do, sink to the bottom. Did you just make the level of water rise, or make it drop, or did not change it at all. How? Try to answer and watch this for the explanation…
