Solution

The correct option is A

Forests


A forest is a large area dominated by trees and is known as the 'green lungs'. Since, they absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and release oxygen during the day time. Oxygen is required for animal respiration. Thus, in this manner they maintain the balance of these gases in the atmosphere.
