Solution

The correct option is B

B is hotter than A


Himanshu's right hand felt hotter after dipping in normal water. This means that the water in the normal bucket is at a temperature that is higher than that of bucket A.

Similarly, we can conclude that water in the normal bucket is at a temperature lower than that of water in bucket B because his left-hand felt colder here.

In other words, the order of temperatures in the buckets is as follows:

Bucket A < Normal bucket < Bucket B

Therefore, bucket A has cold water whereas bucket B has hot water, compared to the water in the normal bucket.
