Question

Why is a white dress more comfortable than a dark dress in summer?

Solution

A white colour dress reflects almost all the radiations falling on it. So, it does not absorb any heat from the sunlight and we feel more comfortable in it. On the other hand, a dark colour dress absorbs maximum radiation falling on it. So, we feel hot in a dark coloured dress during summers.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
