1. Answer: 1.3 Meters or B

Step-by-step explanation:

To answer this question, it must be noted first that the reference points of the given distances in this item is (1) the surface of the water and (2) the feet. We are given with the distance from the hand to the feet, 1.8 m, and from the feet to the surface of the water, 0.5 m. To get the distance from the hands to the surface of the water, we just have to subtract the given distances giving us an answer of 1.3 m.
