Force of buoyancy  on the empty plastic bottle = m g + m * g/6

Volume * 1000 kg/m³ * g =  7 m g / 6
Volume = 7 m / 6000    m³

Let X kg of sand be put inside the empty bottle and bottle be sealed.

buoyancy force (same as before) =  (m+X) * 5 g / 6
( 7 m / 6000 ) * 1000 * g  = (m+X) 5 g / 6

7 m = 5 m + 5 X

X = 2 m / 5

You need to fill with sand,  whose weight (mass) equal to 40% of the weight (mass) of empty bottle.

Jahapanah tussi great ho ... tofa kubool karo :D u r gem wow!!
sir how do you know each and everything in the world
thanks.for the compliments. but no so great.
Awh!!
