Temperature of small quantity of water

This is a multiple choice question. I need help as to arrive at the correct answer:

If the temperature of a small quantity of water in a closed container gradually increases from 0 to 4C, then the density of the water within this range.
A. increases for a while and then decreases
B. decreases for a while and then increases
C. increases gradually
D. decreases gradually
E. remains the same
Please explain and give reason for your answer. Any help will be appreciated greatly. Thanks!
