the best answer is d because the strong cohesion is caused by the ability of water molecules to undergo hydrogen bonding.
a is incorrect because when water solidifies, it becomes ice, which expands and occupies a bigger volume for the same mass of water in its liquid state.
b is incorrect because water has high surface tension. besides bonding to itself it hydrogen bonds to other molecules at the top decreasing possibility for breaking of attractive forces.
c is incorrect because the water molecule has oxygen which is highly electronegative and so pulls the electron pair towards itself creating a dipole moment, making the molecule polar.
e is incorrect because water has strong adhesion, ability to stick to other molecules such as glass because of this molecules having stronger hydrogen bonding than water.
it's c (engineer's do their work with mechanical stuff not on any living being)
