Answer.

    Height of tank in contact with water=3/4*20=15cm
Area of four walls of tank in contact with water=2(l b)*h=2(30 20)*15=2*50*15=1500 sq. cm
Area of base of tank in contact with water=l*b=30*20=600 sq. cm
Therefore total area of tank in contact with water=(1500 600) sq. cm=2100 sq. cm

Length (l), breadth (b) and height (h) of the cuboidal fish tank are 30 cm, 20 cm and 20 cm respectively.
The area of the tank which is in contact with water
  = Area of base of the cuboidal fish tank
  = l  × b
  = 30 cm × 20 cm 
  = 600 sq. cm
