Solution

## The correct option is C Rise and then floatAnswer is C.An egg will sink in fresh water but it will float in very salty water; the density of the egg is greater than the density of fresh water but less than the density of the salty water.The density of salty water can be a much as 10% greater than that of fresh water i.e. up to 1.1g/cm3.Hence, on dissolving a lot of salt in the water, the egg will rise and then float.
