Answer: Option (B) is the correct answer.Explanation:According to the law of mass conservation, energy can neither be created nor can be destroyed, since it can only be transferred from one place to another. Therefore, in a closed system, the matter can not be changed as the system is closed, but may not be the transfer of energy from the system to the surroundings.Therefore, we can conclude that the energy is going to be changed, but the matter will not be changed.
