What will happen if an without shell is placed in concencrated salt solution for 5 minutes?

As concentarted salt solution is a hypertonic solution (salt solution is more concentrated than inside of the egg), the egg shrinks because water passes out of the egg into the salt solution. This process is also called exosmosis.
