detailed solution

Correct option is A

According to Newton's law of cooling, θ1−θ2t=Kθ1+θ22−θ0 For first process: (80−64)5=K80+642−θ0           …(i)For second process: (80−52)10=K80+522−θ0        …(ii)For third process: (80−θ)15=K80+θ2−θ0                …(iii)On solving Eqs. (i) and (ii), we getK=115 and θ0=24∘CPutting these values in Eq. (iii), we getθ=42.7∘C.
