Solution

## The correct option is A Temperature of sphere drops to room temperature at lastdTdt=ϵAσmc(T4−T40)=ϵAσVρc(T4−T40) We know that, ∴ Rate of cooling R∝A (As masses are equal, volume of each body must be equal because material is same) i.e. rate of cooling depends on the surface area and we know that for a given volume the surface area will be minimum for sphere. It means the rate of cooling will be minimum in case of sphere. So the temperature of sphere drops to room tempereature at last.
