7. Keith was going on a camping trip with his father. He ran out of the house dressed in a dark T-shirt and black jeans. His father suggested he change clothes which Keith didn't like. Keith's father then asked him to put one ice cube out of the cooler on their black car and one on the ground in the sand. In a few minutes, there was just a puddle of water on the car while the ice cube in the sand had barely started to melt. Keith decided that he would change his clothes and wear light-colored ones so he wouldn't bake in the sun.
