Rana wants to buy shirts for summer. Should he buy cotton shirts or shirts made from synthetic material? Advise Rana, giving your reason.

 

Answer

Synthetic fibres are made from extremely fine fibres so they do not have pores for the sweat to come out.

Cotton fibres have larger pores which allows the sweat to come out easily and evaporates which makes us feel comfortable.

So,Rana should buy a cotton shirt instead of a polyester shirt.
