c) A spoon heats up while sitting in a bowl of soup.

Conduction is the transfer of thermal energy between substances (liquids or solids) that are in direct contact with each other. Metals and water are good conductors of heat. Conduction is observed when molecules from one substance (i.e., soup) directly bump into the particles of another substance (i.e., spoon) transferring heat.
