Town B has the lower temperature.

#### Explanation:

What you are asking is to compare the numbers $- 3.33$ and $- 3 \frac{2}{5}$.

We first have to find what $\frac{2}{5}$ is in decimal form. We end up with $\frac{2}{5}$ as $0.4$.

Now we have to compare $- 3.4$ and $- 3.33$. Clearly, $- 3.4$ is less.

That means Town B has the lower temperature.
