**(a)**

Due to acceleration towards right, there will be a pseudo force in a left direction. So the pressure will be more on rear side (Points and ) in comparison with front side (Point and )

Also due to height of liquid column pressure will be more at the bottom (points and ) in comparison with top (point and )

So overall maximum pressure will be at point and minimum pressure will be at point
