Solution

The correct option is D

Carbon dioxide


When the radiations of the Sun reach the Earth, some of these radiations are reflected from the surface of the Earth and are trapped by a few gases in the atmosphere, keeping the Earth warm enough to sustain life. These gases are known as greenhouse gases and this effect is called the greenhouse effect.

Examples of greenhouse gases: water vapour, methane, carbon dioxide, ozone and nitrous oxide.
