CHEMISTRY

I am confused about this statement about water
Which of the following is TRUE regarding water

only covalent bonds are broken when ice melts (dont think so)

all of the staements (A-D) are false

energy must be given off in order to break down the crystal lattice of ice to a liquid (dont think so)

liquid water is less dense than solid water ( don't think so...I think its the reverse)

hydrogen bonds are stronger than covalent bonds (dont think so ..i think they are weaker)

So I think all of the statements are in correct so the answer is ...All of the statements (A-D)are false.
Do you agree with me??
Thanks andy
