Thermal Conductors and Insulators

Hard

(Originais Teachy 2023) - Question Hard of Physics

During the winter, people often wear layers of clothing to stay warm in cold temperatures. This is because air, which is a poor conductor of heat (an insulator), gets trapped between the layers of clothing, preventing body heat from escaping into the surrounding environment. Conversely, metal pots are used for cooking because they are good conductors of heat, quickly transferring the heat from the stove to the food inside. Based on the understanding of thermal conductors and insulators, why might a person choose to wear a metallic vest in a hot desert environment during the daytime?
a.
A person might choose to wear a metallic vest in a hot desert environment during the daytime because the metal will absorb all the heat from the sun, making the person feel warmer.
b.
A person might choose to wear a metallic vest in a hot desert environment during the daytime because the metal will insulate the person's body, preventing body heat from escaping.
c.
A person might choose to wear a metallic vest in a hot desert environment during the daytime because the metal will reflect all the sunlight, preventing the person from getting hot.
d.
A person might choose to wear a metallic vest in a hot desert environment during the daytime because the vest, being made of metal, will quickly conduct the heat from the sun away from the person's body, helping the person stay cooler.
e.
A person might choose to wear a metallic vest in a hot desert environment during the daytime because the metal will trap air between the vest and the person's body, creating an insulating layer that keeps the person cool.
