Since no information is given, I'll provide an example in order to better illustrate what the answer could be.
Here's a nice sample problem (taken from here:http://www.physicsclassroom.com/class/thermalP/Lesson-2/Measuring-the-Quantity-of-Heat):
Suppose we have a 12.9 g sample of an unknown metal at
The heat lost by the water (since it cools down) is equal to
The heat gained by the metal (since it heats up) is equal to
Notice how much bigger the difference in temperature between the metal and the water was for the same amount of heat gained/lost.
314 J of heat only caused a 1.5-degree drop in temperature for the water, at the same time causing a 60.6-degree increase in temperature for the metal. By comparison, you would need
Therefore, water is much better at absorbing heat energy (actually, it has the highest specific heat capacity all the liquids) - this is why it's used, for example, in cooling nuclear reactors.
