    Answer:

    The buoyant force on the plastic object is about _twice as that on the rock.

    Explanation:

    The volume of plastic decoration is twice the volume of rock . Buoyant force is equal to weight of displaced volume of water . Since water displaced by plastic decoration is twice , its weight will also be twice . Hence the buoyant force on plastic decoration will also be twice.

    The buoyant force on the plastic object is about _twice as that on the rock.
