The obvious answer would be B – the color of your shirt. How can a shirt, especially its color, influence the severity of the burn? There is no relation between these two things.

In general, the severity depends on several factors. The amps as mentioned in option A is one of them. The amperage is an obvious answer that indicates how serious your shock will be. The duration of the exposure is an important factor as well that may influence the way your body reacts to a burn. The last option, D, is correct for determining the severity and wrong for the given question.

Among all the possible additional factors that may influence the severity of shock such as the type of circuit, resistance, and so on, your shirt’s paint is not one of them.
