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.
