    Explanation
    Rainfall is not a requirement for severe storms to develop because severe storms can occur without significant rainfall. Severe storms are typically characterized by strong winds, heavy precipitation, hail, and lightning. While rainfall can be associated with severe storms, it is not a necessary condition for their development. Other factors such as moist/humid air, an unstable atmosphere, and an area of low pressure are more critical in creating the conditions conducive to severe storm formation.

      Ozone in upper part of atmosphere is harmful to animals

    Correct Answer
    D. Ozone in upper part of atmosphere is harmful to animals
    Explanation
    Ozone in the upper part of the atmosphere is not harmful to animals. In fact, ozone in the stratosphere acts as a protective layer, shielding the Earth from harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation. It absorbs most of the sun's UV radiation, preventing it from reaching the surface of the Earth where it can cause harm to humans, animals, and plants. Ozone depletion, on the other hand, can be harmful as it leads to a thinning of the ozone layer, allowing more UV radiation to reach the Earth's surface.
