							The correct option is (B) the ice will melt so that the mass of the ice will decrease.
In accordance to second law of thermodynamics, if an irreversible process occurs in a closed system, the entropy of that system always increases; it never decreases. Entropy measures the state of disorder. As the ice is more order than water, therefore the ice will melt so that the mass of the ice will decrease. From the above observation we conclude that, option (B) is correct.
