When the cube melts, the surrounding liquid can move into the space it filled. If the glass contains only ice and water, it will not overflow because the amount of extra water will be equal to that previously displaced by the cube(s). Diluted soda is slightly denser than water due to its sugar content.
Density of ice is less than Density of Water.

explanation.

Density = Mass/Volume

=> Mass = Density * Volume

Mass of Ice = Mass of Water

Density of ice * Volume of ice = Density of Water * Volume of water

=> density of ice / Density of water = Volume of Water / Volume of ice

=> Density of ice is less than Density of Water

density of ice / Density of water < 1

=> Volume of Water / Volume of ice < 1

=> Volume of Water < Volume of ice

Hence The water level will drop slightly as the ice melts.

when ice melts,the volume remains unchanged.

Due to anomalous expansion of water at temperature range (0 - 4)°c, when a given mass of water turns into ice, its volume will increase, while the mass remains constant. Thus, when a given volum of ice melts, the volume of water formed will be less than the volume of ice. Hence, the level of water in the container will drop.
