Solution :-

An echo is heard when time interval between the reflected sound and the original sound is at least 0.1 second. As the temperature increases, the speed of sound in a medium also increases. On a hotter day, the time interval between the reflected and original sound will decrease and an echo is audible only if the time interval between the reflected sound and the original sound is greater than 0.1 s.
