Solution

 may increase slightly or may decrease slightly

If a body is rubbed with another body, it'll either gain some electrons from the other body and become negatively charged or it'll lose some electrons to the other body and become positively charged. Gain of electrons increases the weight of a body slightly and loss of electrons reduces the weight slightly.
