We know that when a body is fully or partially submerged in a fluid,its weight is decreased and that amount of decrease is equals to the weight of the fluid displaced by it.

So,this apparent reduction of weight is due to the buoyancy force acting,which is equals to the weight of the fluid displaced by the body.

So,here the buoyancy force acting on the object is
