Which of the following best explains why holes in the ozone layer appear predominantly over the South Pole?
A. Formation of ice crystals in stratospheric clouds during the long winters provide surfaces that convert otherwise safe molecules into those that deplete ozone.
B. Because of their polarization, free radical chlorine atoms are attracted to the southern magnetic pole where they more effectively serve as catalysts.
C. Chlorofluorocarbons combine with higher concentrations of chlorinated carbon compounds from natural sources that are more prevalent in Antarctica.
