Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Let's remember that any material changes its dimensions with a change of the temperature. Most material increases its dimensions when the temperature increases. So if we heat a steel plate with a hole drilled then the diameter of the hole increases. So it's option A.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
