The correct answer is a. the stratosphere.The stratosphere is the second layer of the Earth's atmosphere, and is the second more dense layer as well. In this layer, there is an area where the dominant gas is ozone (03). The ozone is the one which is most responsible for absorption of ultraviolet radiation of the Sun. Unfortunately, this layer is becoming more and more damaged because of human activities, and urgent measures have to be taken sooner rather than later for your protection.
