Solution

## The correct option is B The water in bucket B is hotter than in bucket A. Himanshu feels hotness in his right hand after dipping it in normal water. So, the normal water is at a higher temperature than the water in bucket A. Similarly, he feels coldness in his left hand because the water in bucket B is warmer than the normal water. So, the order of temperature is as follows: Bucket A < Bucket with normal water < Bucket B Therefore, the water in bucket B is hotter than that in bucket A.
