Answer

None of these

Reason — The laws of thermodynamics are stated below:

  1. First law of thermodynamics (Law of conservation of energy) — Energy can be transformed from one form to another form, but it can neither be created nor destroyed.
  2. Second law of thermodynamics — When energy is put to work, a part of it is always converted in unuseful form mainly as heat, due to friction and radiation.
