A

c.

B

d.

C

Answer

c.

Explanation

Pressure in liquid we can define as

Where ρ = Density of liquid

g = Gravitational acceleration

h = Height above the point at which we measure the pressure

In this case density of sea water is denser fresh water and height of diver B is more.

Thus on diver B is there the greatest pressure.
