    Hello. You forgot to enter the answer options. The options are:

    "A. a degree is a way to measure ingredients in a recipe B. a degree is a type of measuring stick like a ruler C. a degree is a form of temperature measurement D. a degree measures academic success in school"


    C. a degree is a form of temperature measurement


    As you already know, the word "degree" can be used to indicate a temperature measurement, that is, this word can indicate measure, quantity. This concept fits perfectly in the section shown in the question above, because it allows the reader to understand that Mr. Pontellier was totally uncomfortable, since there was no way to measure his comfort so low that it was.
