1. 100° C she can expect once the water begins to boil.

Option: B

Explanation:

The boiling point for water at 1 pressure atmosphere of sea level is 212 ° F or 100 ° C. That value isn’t a fixed. Water’s boiling point is dependent on the ambient pressure, which varies based on elevation. At a lower temperature, water boils as one gains altitude like getting higher on a hill, and boils at a higher temperature if one increases the atmospheric pressure of returning to or below sea level.

It also relies upon the water’s purity. Water containing contaminants like salted water boils at a level higher than pure water. This effect is called acceleration of the boiling point and is one of the material’s colligative features.
