Planet e has gone down a bit though. Wonder if it's still rocky.

Well densities of the planets look now planet b 4.81 ,c -5.23, d-4.23, e 4.80, f- 4.66, g- 4.61 , h- 4.39 g/cm3 so all depends on Fe %, Mg % ,water and other factors, nevertheless some of them can contain up to 3 % of water assuming 32 % Fe (earthlike composition) In this case e and c have very similar composition to Venus and may contain little bit more water than Earth can have some land but almost entirely covered by ocean .Planets b and f have almost identical composition but surely require to have water 1-1.5 %. Planet g has the most water of all but not more than 3%.Planet d after revised mass still requires water but much less maybe even less than 0.1%. Planet h has not more than twice water than Earth so is not completely covered by water. Assuming lower Fe % than 32 for example 20 all planets might be waterless even g
