    The density of sea water increases as:

    A)  Depth increases and salinity decreases

    B)  Depth decreases and salinity increases

    C)  Depth and salinity decreases

    D)  Depth and salinity increases

    Correct Answer: D

    Solution :

    [d] There are two main factors that make ocean water more or less dense than about \[1027\,Kg/{{m}^{3}}\]: the temperature of the water and the salinity of the water. Ocean water gets more-dense as temperature goes down. So, the colder the water, the more dense it is. Increasing salinity also increases the density of sea water.
