    Answer:  (1) 1.125

    Solution:-
    The weight of a vessel, full of water = 16.5 kg
    Therefore, the weight of 1/4 vessel , full of water = 16.5/4
     = 4.125 kg 

    The weight of vessel is 1/4 full = 5.25 Kg

    Then. the weight of empty vessel = 5.25 – 4.125
     = 1.125 kg

    Hence, the correct answer is option (1) 1.125
