In the 7th editon textbook, question 4A.1,why is the mercury in a thermometer an isolated system? Should not it be a closed system because the mercury will move based on the temperature of the surroundings?

I just checked the solutions manual again to make sure. The mercury is a closed system, and the manual says that.
