Solution

When a large amount of salt is dissolved in water, the density of salt solution becomes higher than pure water. It is because of its higher density, the salt solution exerts a greater upward buoyant force on the egg, making it rise and then float.

Concept: Buoyancy Force (Upthrust Force)
  Is there an error in this question or solution?
