Answer: C

Explanation: The temperature at which product gases of the chemical reaction taking place within the combustion chamber is too high. It is even higher than the melting point of some of the more commonly used materials in aircraft industry like aluminum (660 °C). Appropriate cooling mechanisms are set up to ensure that this high temperature doesn’t transfer over to the rocket components and that it doesn’t lead to the development of thermal stresses.
