When you place an egg in water, it sinks. If you add salt to

When you place an egg in water, it sinks. If you add salt to the water, after some time the egg floats. Choose the correct explanation. Adding salt to the water increases its volume. When the volume of the water matches that of the egg, the egg becomes neutrally buoyant and floats. Adding salt to the water decreases its density. When the density of the water matches that of the egg, the egg becomes neutrally buoyant and floats. Adding salt to the water decreases its volume.
