A fisherman rowing his boat on a very small lake throws his anchor into the water. Does the water level of the lake rise, fall, or stay the same?

rise
It falls
Stays the same. The anchor in the water displaces the same about of water as it did when it was in the boat.
oh ya, didn't think of the that. It weighs the boat down, displacing water.
