Solution

## The correct option is B Water in bucket B is hotter than water in bucket A.Heat flows from a hot body to a cold body. Himanshu's right hand felt hotter after dipping in water at room temperature. This means that the water in bucket A is at a temperature less than the room temperature. Similarly, we can conclude that water in bucket B has a temperature more than the room temperature. Therefore, water in bucket B is hotter than water in bucket A.
