The Oxides of Nitrogen are major reason behind:

  1. Ground level Ozone
  2. Ozone Hole
  3. Acid Rain

Select the correct option from the codes given below:

Answer: [D] 1, 2 & 3

Ground level ozone is created by chemical reactions between oxides of nitrogen (Nox) and volatile organic compounds (VOC) in the presence of sunlight. Nitrous oxide has now become the largest ozonedepleting substance emitted through human activities, and is expected to remain the largest. The three kinds of Oxides matter in the Acid Rains. They are Oxides of Sulphur, Oxides of Nitrogen and Oxides of Hydrogen viz. water and Hydroxyl Radicals.
