In my opinoin A is corrcect beacuse silvered wall is a solid thing and solid thing get's heat through the process of conduction.

Option C is the correct answer as the silvered walls of the thermo flask helps the liquid to sustain its form by reflecting the heat by Radiation (Heat that does not need any medium to travel unlike conduction and convection.)

A is the correct answer

Option c is the correct answer, because if at all any cold material is stored in the flask, then the liquid becomes hot due to the heat of the sun. Hence it is used to reflect the radiation from the sun
