Answer:

Colligative properties are properties of a liquid that may be the presence of a solute and is associated mostly with seawater.

Colligative properties (vapor-pressure lowering, freezing-point depression, boiling-point elevation, and osmotic pressure) are unique properties of solutions.

The density of seawater depends increases with increasing salt content and decreases with increasing temperature. This is a key influence on ocean currents.
