Correct answer is (a) By insulation

To elaborate: Heat is transferred from the absorber plate to a point of use by the circulating fluid via water across the solar heated surface. The heat loss from the surface is prevented by placing thermal insulation of 5 to 10cm thickness behind the absorber plate.
