Expert Answer:

(i)Warm blooded animals try to maintain their internal body heat by generating heat when in a cooler environment and cooling themselves when in a hotter environment through sweat etc.
Cold blooded animals change their body temperature to that of their surrounding environments and tend to be less active in colder environments that in warmer environments.
(ii)To stay cool, warm-blooded animals move into a shaded area or by getting wet but cold-blooded animals often like to lie in the sun to warm up and increase their metabolism.
