The same source from the previous one.

The laws of nature say that the colder an object gets, the heavier it becomes. In that case, water should freeze from the bottom up. But does it really?

Absolutely not.

Which one is the whole sentence before removing the repeated words, <does it really freeze from the bottom up?> or <does it really happen?> ?

I think it is the first one but would the second one be possible?

Thanks in advance

What is elided in "Does it really?" is the verb "freeze." Here are some more examples:

- They say water may freeze, but I don't think it will (freeze).
- Water should have frozen, but it hasn't (frozen).
