Read the paragraph. When the Titanic struck the iceberg, some of the watertight compartments ripped open and filled with water. Although the compartments had been designed to prevent the ship from flooding, they unexpectedly did not seal off incoming water. The compartments were not capped at the top, and water continued to enter them as the ship angled down into the water. Other researchers suggest that the rivets (metal fasteners) and the seams of the watertight compartments did not hold together as well as expected. What does this paragraph imply?

The Titanic was the world’s largest steamship of its time. The Titanic’s watertight compartments were sealed at the top. The Titanic’s watertight compartments did not function properly. The Titanic’s construction prevented water from flooding the ship.

i think that it means is that they did not use strong enough sealers to keep it from sinking
