At a camp site there are tents of two shades one made with black fabric and the other with white fabric. Which one will you prefer for resting on a hot summer afternoon? Give reason for your choice. Would you like to prefer the same tent during winter?

Answer:
On a hot summer afternoon the tent made up of white fabric will be preferred as white colour is a bad absorber and good reflector of heat.
No, the black fabric tent will be preferred during winter.
