Random Errors

Recommended Posts

For this question, I chose B, as random error could be due to human error, however, the answer is C. 

I can understand why it is C, but I don't understand why B is not the right answer. 

Any advice will be appreciated

B refers to heat loss to the surroundings, which is a systematic error not a random error. Heat loss can be reduced by using an insulated cup. 

Maybe this video will help:
