Expert Answer:

The shell of an egg is mainly made up of calcium bicarbonate. It is impermeable to water. So, when the shelled egg is placed in water, the water can neither enter nor leave the egg. Hence, there will not be any change in the size of the egg.
When the deshelled boiled egg is placed in water, it also does not show any change in size because its membranous covering has become dead due to boiling. So, there will not be any entry or exit of water from the egg cell.
