Solution

The correct option is B Pollution
Acid rain is caused by a chemical reaction that begins when compounds like sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides are released into the air. Sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides dissolve very easily in water and can be carried very far by the wind.

These substances can rise very high into the atmosphere, where they mix and react with water, oxygen, and other chemicals to form more acidic pollutants, known as acid rain. 

So, pollution is the main cause of acid rain.
