    The major pollutants to deplete ozone are

    A)  chlorofluoro carbons

    B)  nitrogen oxides

    C)  Hydrocarbons

    D)  all above

    Correct Answer: D

    Solution :

    [d] The details of polar ozone hole formation differ from that of mid-latitude thinning but the most important process in both is catalytic destruction of ozone by atomic halogens. The main source of these halogen atoms in the stratosphere is photo dissociation of man-made halocarbon refrigerants, solvents, propellants, and foam-blowing agents (CFCs, HCFCs, freons, halons). These compounds are transported into the stratosphere by winds after being emitted at the surface.
