    |dw:1392997668944:dw| the flasks dont have point of physical contact, so thermal energy can't be exchanged.

    nope, that would be the answer if the q asked about convection. Conduction is about physical contact.

    I think the answer is the lid of the vacuum flask made up of plastic. There is no correct answer here.
