  •  must have decreased

  • may have increased

  •  may have remained constant

Solution

 must have increased. 

The whole system (water + solid object) is enclosed in an adiabatic container from which no heat can escape. After some time, the temperature of water falls, which implies that the heat from the water has been transferred to the object, leading to increase in its temperature.
