    • B.

      This ship will sink

    • C.

      Who cares !

    Correct Answer
    A. God himself can not sink this ship.
    Explanation
    The given answer is "God himself can not sink this ship." This statement is significant because it highlights the confidence and arrogance of the people on the ship, who believe that their vessel is unsinkable even by a divine force. This overconfidence ultimately leads to a disastrous outcome, as the ship does end up sinking. The answer captures the irony and hubris of the situation, emphasizing the consequences of underestimating the power of nature.

    Explanation
    The Titanic had 16 water tight compartments. These compartments were designed to prevent flooding in case of a hull breach. Each compartment had doors that could be closed to isolate any flooding to a specific area, allowing the ship to stay afloat even if multiple compartments were flooded. However, the Titanic's sinking was ultimately caused by the fact that the iceberg punctured multiple compartments, overwhelming the ship's ability to stay afloat.
