Dear student,

C and D

from metallic peice, more heat is conducted into the body than from a wooden peice. So, C is correct.

Wooden peice will act as a black body and it will absorb more heat as compared to a polished metallic peice when placed in open in bright sun. According to kirchoff's law, as a good absorberis also a good emitter, wooden peice will lose heat at a faster rate than the metallic peice.
Hope this helps.
Thanking you
