What has to have more density for an object to float on water the object or water?
Normally the water - to float and object has to displace a volume of water equal to its mass. If its density is greater than that of water, the maximum mass of water it can displace is its own volume which, as the water is less dense that it, will have less mass than the object and it will sink. However, for small light objects the surface tension of water comes into play - it is possible to float a steel sewing needle (with a density greater than water) on water by gently dropping a clean needle on its side onto the water surface so that it does not break the surface tension. With a needle floating, adding a few drops of washing up liquid to the surface reduces the surface tension and the needle will then sink.

Asked in Citrus Fruit
What fruits float out of an apple an orange and a lemon?
An apple will float - that's why you can play bobbing for apples! Oranges will float if they still have their peel on, but if they don't then they sink. I've never tried it with a lemon though, so I'm not sure! Probably the same as oranges in my opinion! Lemons do float due to the peel. Without the peel, though they sink.
What is the universal force that causes every object to attract every other object?
Gravity or gravitation. The larger and (most importantly) more dense the object - the higher (or greater) the gravity. So gravity is a function of mass (which takes both density and size into account - since something which is very large but has low density) can have a much lower mass than something which is tiny but has a very high density. Rotation (spinning) and electrical charge can also play a significant role in determing the gravity of any object.
