Here density (d)= 0.50gm/cm^3 and Mass (m)= 2000g. The oil density is given as 0.75gm/cm^3.

Volume displaced x Density of liquid  x g = weight of the block(m g)

Volume displaced x (0.75gm/cm^3) xg = (2000 gm) x g 

Volume displaced = (2000 gm )/ (0.75 gm / cm^3)

Volume displaced = 2667 cm^3

Hence, the answer is (a) = 2667 cm^3
