shallower.

Explanation:

To understand and to be able to solve this question, we have to understand the concept of Apparent depth and real depth.

If we have a bowl and water is filled to its brim, when you look inside the bowl full of water you will notice that the distance from the top of the bowl of water to the buttom seems a little bit closer this is known as as the APPARENT DEPTH and it is caused by REFRACTION.

The Snell’s law can be used to show the relationship between the real depth and the apparent depth as given below;

n = real depth/apparent depth.

Refraction which is a property of wave causes the left sink which is filled with water to be able to bend. As light goes into water, it bends which will makes the left sink which is filled with water to appear SHALLOWER.
