    Answer:

    Because there’s buoyancy force

    Explanation:

    What is wrong here is that he assumes that gravity is the only force affecting the weight of the balloon on the scale here. In reality there’s also buoyancy force which lifts the full blown balloon upwards.

    A better type of container would be an air tank where its volume does not change when it’s empty and when it’s full of air.
