According to me, both the arguments are true. Because reducing pollution at one level and making it to increase at other levels may cause critical problems.

As we all know acid rains are caused by health hazard gases which are released by AC, Vehicles and household materials. These dangerous gases cause depletion in the ozone layer which protects us from strong UV Rays. If we conclude this all as not a problem then we can say pollution in the above atmosphere is not a problem but in the reality of life, this all is the worst condition facing at the present situation. So both the arugment are important.

Yes, I too think the answer is C because even if the pollution is expelled up to the stratosphere it can cause acid rains which are eventually harmful to plant and animal lives.

What is the difference between "Either of Both"? Please tell me.

Setika Nag said:   6 years ago
Yes, option A. Pollution at ground level is reduced so argument I is correct but argument 2 states negatively state that pollution in the upper atmosphere increases so ground level pollution is acceptable.

E must be the answer because argument 2 is strong enough with respect to the 1st one.
