Question 43

During January, at a location in Rohtang, winds at $$-6^\circ C$$ can be observed. Several meters below the ground, the temperature remains at $$27^\circ C$$. A scientist claims to have devised a power cycle exploiting this situation that has a thermal efficiency of 10%. Whether the claim is true?
