    Correct Answer
    B. 136
    Explanation
    A light-colored car is not as hot as a dark-colored car because light colors reflect more sunlight and absorb less heat. Therefore, the temperature of a light-colored car is relatively lower. The given answer of 136 suggests that the light-colored car is moderately warm, but not excessively hot.

    How hot is a dark-colored car?

    • A.

    • B.

      178

    • C.

      168

    Correct Answer
    C. 168
    Explanation
    Dark-colored cars tend to absorb more heat from the sun compared to lighter-colored cars. This is because dark colors absorb more light and convert it into heat energy. Therefore, a dark-colored car would be hotter than a lighter-colored car when exposed to the same amount of sunlight. The correct answer, 168, may represent a temperature measurement in degrees Fahrenheit or Celsius, indicating the increased heat absorbed by a dark-colored car.
