Darsheel took an empty plastic bottle and used a nail to poke a hole on the side of the bottle. 
 
He covered the hole with his finger and filled the bottle with water all the way to the top. Then he tightly screwed on the cap, and slowly took his finger away from the hole. No water came rushing out of the hole, when he did this. 


How is this possible?

A
Atmospheric pressure acts on the hole pushing the water in, but because the cap is closed, no atmospheric pressure acts on the surface of the water, to push it down and force it out of the bottle.
B
The weight of the water in the bottle exerts more force against the atmospheric pressure acting on it, preventing water from coming out of the bottle.
C
He must have conducted the experiment on a day when the atmospheric pressure was very low, so there was not enough pressure on the water to push it out of the bottle.
D
The hole he had made was too high. If it was lower, near the base of the bottle, the water would have come out.
