Hydrogen (H2) is similar to carbon monoxide in that it acts as an indirect greenhouse gas through its effect on hydroxyl (OH) radicals. By reducing the levels of OH in the atmosphere, hydrogen increases the lifetime of some direct greenhouse gases, such as methane.

About 16 km Up in our earth there are a layer called OZONE layer the gases which are responsible to dissolve this layer called greenhouse gases these gases are carbon dioxide(co2), methane(ch3), chlorofluorocarbon(CCL2F2).

When light come from sun and heat up the atmosphere gases prevent heat to go up these gases are called green house gases. Hydrogen can not take part in green house effect because size is small.

The most abundant greenhouse gases in Earth's atmosphere are:

Water vapor (H2O).
Carbon dioxide (CO2).
Methane (CH4).
Nitrous oxide (N2O).
Ozone (O3).
Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs).

When water evaporates the steam of the water is carbon dioxide that is why water vapour is considered as a greenhouse gas.

Hydrogen is not a green house gas because it have light weight and it does not react that much as compared to the another.

I know hydrogen is the correct answer but anybody tell me why water vapour is considered as a greenhouse gas?

The greenhouse gases make a layer on the earth's surface that traps heat in it thus making the earth warm.

Although hydrogen is not a primary greenhouse gas, but it can also act as a secondary catalyst formation.

Carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide are called green house gases which causes global warming.
