Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

We know,

Pressure = density X g X height

so, P = (13.6X10^2) * (9.80) * (73.6/100)   ...............height is divided by 100 to convert it into meters from cm

P = 98.094 x 10^3

Answer is option d.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
