What's high specific heat is mainly a consequence of the:
A) high specific heat of oxygen and hydrogen atoms
B) inability of water to dissipate heat into dry air
D) absorption and release of heat when hydrogen bonds break and form
E) fact that water is a poor heat conductor

I know the answer is D, but I don't know how to disprove the other choices
