The boiling point of pure water is 100C. at 1atm. The freezing point of pure water is  OC. The sample of water under study boils at 102C at normal pressure. Hence, the sample is not pure water. Since the sample of water is not pure, it will not freeze at  OC. It will freeze at a temperature below OC.
