Solution

## The correct option is A Warmer While holding ice in hands for a while, there is a heat transfer from the hand to the ice. As a result, the hands would feel cold. Since the heat is transferred from hand to ice, the temperature of the hand decreases let us assume around 10∘C. Now, if the hand is put in water at room temperature (around 25∘ C), it would feel hotter as it is now in contact with water which is at a higher temperature.
