Solution

## We know that heat flows from a hot body to a cold body. 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, we4 can conclude that the water in the normal bucket is at a temperature lower than that of water in bucket B because his left hand felt colder here. The temperature of the buckets in the increasing order is: 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.
