Answer:

It would REDUCE the observed #"freezing point depression......"#

Explanation:

#"Freezing point depression......"# is a so-called #"colligative property"#; it depends on the NUMBER of species in solution. Should a solute dimerize, then the observed #"freezing point depression"# will be half that of the hypothetical monomer. Capisce?
