Answer

The answer is below.

Work Step by Step

When ice is in a glass of water, it is melting, causing the water to become colder and the ice (which is not melted) to become warmer. Thus, the ice will continue to melt until there is just water at a constant temperature. Because ice is still present, it is clear that this has not occurred yet, meaning that the ice is still colder than the water.
