Correct option is
B

False

Metal conducts heat much better than wood does. Since your hand is hotter than room temperature, both the metal and the wood conduct heat away from it because iron and wood are at lower temperature as compared to your hand.So both feel cold but iron is a better conductor than wood that's why an iron chair in winter feels colder in winter than wood.
