# If water is freezed to become ice, its volume is increased by 10% :

If water is freezed to become ice, its volume is increased by 10%, then if the ice melted to water again, its volume will be decreased by:

- 9 ½%
- 9 1/11%
- 8%
- 9%

**Answer: (2) 9 1/11%**

**Explanation:-**

Let the volume of the water be = 100 ml

If water is froze to become ice, its volume is increased by 10%.

Then, the volume of the ice = 100 x 110/100

= 110 ml

If the melted to water again,

Then, the volume of the water = 100 ml

The volume decreased by = 110 – 100

= 10 ml

Then, the percentage of decreased volume = 10 x 100/110

= 100/11 %

= 9 1/11%

Hence, the answer is (2) 9 1/11%.
