# What occurs when fruit is dehydrated? "A. The mass of the fruit sugars are increased." "B. The mass of the fruit sugars are decreased." "C. The mass of the fruit is decreased after the water is evaporated." "D. None of the above."

$\text{Option C.}$
Clearly, $\text{C}$ is the only viable option. Mass LOSS occurs when something is dehydrated. Why? Because the water is evaporated. You can clearly see this when you reconstitute dried fruit by soaking sultanas/raisins or dried apricots/apples in water.
