In troposphere (the weather domain), the temperature 't' at height 'h' above the sea level in metres is given by (where, temperature at sea level is 15°C and t is in °C.)

[A]. t = 15 - 0.0065 h
[B]. t = 15 + 0.0065 h
[C]. t = 0.0035 h - 15
[D]. t = 15 - 0.0035 h

Answer: Option A

With the increase in height from the sea level in troposphere, the temperature decreases.

On which basis, we can decide between Option-A and Option-D?

How is the height factor decided?

Please, Explain this.

I think it's based on lapse rate, 6.5 degree c per 1 km.

In troposphere according to lapse rate as increase in altitude of 1km 6.5 c temp decreases.

Abhishek Kumar said: (May 5, 2019)  
In the troposphere, the variation of temperature with altitude is given by the equation
T = T0 " λ h.

Where T0 is the sea level temperature, T is the temperature at the altitude h and λ is the temperature lapse rate in the troposphere.

λ = 0.0065 K/m in the troposphere.
