    The answer is B - constant volume upon freezing.

    Explanation:

    The volume of water increases when water is frozen. This is because when freezing water, the molecules of water become more defined and the molecules gets arranged into a hexagonal crystalline. This altered arrangement is less dense than the structure of the molecules in its liquid state. Hence, the ice that forms is less dense that ordinary water. In fact, when water freezes, its volume increases by 9 percent. Option A is correct because of the polarity of water. Option C is correct because water does absorb and lose heat quite rapidly. And option D is correct because water demonstrates the ability for its molecules to stick together.
