1.    volume of gasoline displaced = 10 cc = volume of  paraffin block
mass of gasoline displaced = 10 cc * 0.7g/cc = 7 gm
weight of gasoline displaced = (7 /1000)kg * 10 m/sec² = 0.07 Newtons

2. weight of paraffin in air = 0.085 Newton
since weight is more than the weight of gasoline displaced,  it will sink to the bottom of gasoline container.
