Answer:

Clearly, it's #250*g#.

Explanation:

#"Density", rho# #=# #"Mass"/"Volume"#

#"Mass"# #=# #rhoxx"volume"# #=# #50*g*mL^-1xx5*mL#.

This question is physically unrealistic, and should not have been asked. The densest liquid I know is mercury metal, #rho=13.55*g*mL^-1#. This question proposes a super dense liquid.
