Question

By opening the door of a refrigerator inside a closed room:

Solution

Correct option is

You ultimately warm the room slightly

If a refrigerator is working in a closed room with its door closed, the refrigerator will reject heat from its inside into the room continuously and so the temperature of the room will gradually increase. Now, if the door of the refrigerator is open the heat rejected by the refrigerator in the room will be more than the heat, taken by it from the room (by an amount equal to the work done by the compressor); so the temperature of the room in this case will also increase gradually but at a slower rate as compared to that in 1st case.
