A)
It was in the state of gas.Water's lower density in its solid form is due to the way hydrogen bonds are oriented as it freezes. Specifically, in ice, the water molecules are pushed farther apart than they are in liquid water. That means water expands when it freezes.Water's lower density in its solid form is due to the way hydrogen bonds are oriented as it freezes.
