Suppose you wanted to design your own temperature scale based on methyl alcohol
(methanol). On the Celsius scale, methanol has a melting point of −96 ◦C and a boiling
point of 64 ◦C, but on your new scale calibrated in units of degrees methanol, ◦M, you
define methanol to melt at 0◦M and boil at 200◦M. On the methanol scale, the melting
and boiling points of water are
(A) 0◦M and 200◦M (B) 60◦M and 222.5◦M
(C) 76.8◦M and 228.8◦M (D) 120◦M and 245◦M
