### Why does a person lift a heavy stone immersed in water as compared to air?

If the question is asking "for what reason would a person lift a heavy stone immersed in water as opposed to air?" then the answer is buoyancy. When immersed in water there will be an upward force on the bottom of the stone due to the volume of water it has displaced. This upward force will make the stone seem lighter to the person lifting it by decreasing the amount of force they need to exert to lift it.
