Correct option is
C

Both Sunstroke and Frost bite

Ladakh also defamation in the rain darkness area, it receives less rainfall and experiences tremendously cold and dry conditions. If you sit in the sun with your feet in the shade you may suffer from both sunstroke and frostbite at the same time. This is because of the elevation of the place which ranges from 3000m–8000m. The air at such heights is so thin that it absorbs insignificant solar emission as a result it is very intense.
