A housewife was preparing hot meal for her family. She accidentally placed her fingertip into some boiling soup, but quickly withdrew it. She felt significant pain in the finger immediately after that. Which of the following is the most likely explanation for this time lag?

A The withdrawal of her finger is a reflex action that is triggered more quickly than the transmission of information related to pain stimulus to her brain.
B The pain receptors present on her finger skin are less efficient, so information regarding pain is transmitted to brain at a slower rate as compared to that of heat.
C The withdrawal of her finger is controlled by brain so it occurs very fast whereas feeling of pain is a reflex action controlled by spinal cord so it takes comparatively much more time.
D None of these
