Solution

The correct option is A

Temperature


The temperature of a body depends on the average kinetic energy of its molecules due to their random motion. The temperature will rise up if the kinetic energy of the molecules of the substance increases and vice versa. In other words, adding heat to a system causes its temperature to rise. Temperatures are commonly measured in the Kelvin or Celsius scales.
